Re: Gumby suit vs. Wet or dry Suit
For those who have listened to the testimony of Bounty crews regarding their survival suit, it seems that there are lot of room for improvement. I have been thinking about instead of buying these expensive overprice suit, why not just get a diving wet suit or dry suit.
Does anyone think of any potential problems with it?
I assume that i will also have my PFD with harness and helmet. I will put this on when there is an imminent capsizing possibility.
Ever try to put on a 7mm wet suit when everything is wet and your in panic mode??
Also the price of a dry suit is considerable more then a survival suit..
I've never seen a dive suit come in international orange with attached reflective SOLAS tape
..though it's an interesting idea
