The disadvantage of a drysuit is that it is hard to adjust for changing temp and physical activity levels. With FWG, you can just open the jacket or layer fairly easily, which is not the case for a drysuit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

david, the problem with a drysuit is that it is SUPPOSED to be like a giant ziploc bag. What's outside stays outside--but you can pickle in your own juices inside.

Great for riding on wet boats in cold wx is you aren't planning to sweat a lot, otherwise...pickle.

I have an opportunity to sail in the Chicago/Mac race in July, I know I need to buy a PFD with a harness, since that is at least 250.00 do I need to spend an additional 400.00 on gortex foulies? Keeping my cost down somewhat will make going an easier pill to swallow for the Admiral. I understand about comfort and breathability, but will say frog togs do just as well in the middle of July.
