I often wear a wind shirt as well.
Gloves - low tech good old fashioned rubber gloves with a fleece liner
Boots - breathable, if you can afford them. Dubarry is the gold standard, I wear Sperry Fathom's they have kept my feet dry from both sides.
+1 stay on the boat. Inflatable pfd with harness and a good tether.
I would add Helly Hansen to the list of manufacturers of foulies. Love my offshore bib pants.
