If you are going offshore or even on something as large as the Great Lakes the first thing you need is adequate wet weather gear. Jacket, Pants, Boots, Gloves.
It was my decision to keep myself in the cockpit during that time, and no one else. I was on the 2am to 6am shift, and let my husband sleep in the extra hour because that was the only sleep he was going to get that night. Like I had mentioned, I could have gone below and changed into my foul weather gear at any time, but I knew I was in no real danger of hypothermia (it was July), and if I thought I was I would have done something about it. As eherlihy put it, I'm a girl who can suck it up. (Side note, I do have most of the wet weather gear I'd need for any storms and will pick up anything else I do not have before we leave).

Glad to know some of my cottons will still work in the Bahamas, that's where I was planning on wearing all my cotton dresses.
