Re: Foul Weather Gear

My "foul weather gear" for the tropics is a shorty wetsuit. I have one that's not too tight so I can don it and take it off at the companionway easily. I don't mind getting wet in the warm tropical rain and the wetsuit keeps me warm by keeping the wind off my skin. Also, it works wet or dry. My first line of defense against the elements, though, is a hard dodger so I can sit in the cockpit out of the wind and rain.
