Re: First "off-season" delivery

You are asking this question at the PERFECT time. It is the end of the season in the NE and most small marina stores that carry high end sailing gear just for their slipholders would prefer to unload the stuff than keep it all winter. I got a pair of Duberry's in Stonington for 65% off retail in October. With a bit of shopping around you could do very well on such items.
I agree on good quality gear. A cold, rainy night watch can be hell without good gear.
Good luck.

Re: First "off-season" delivery

I have a pair. They're the warmest boots I've worn. Not a lot of sole padding, so an insert helps depending on what type of foot you have. They come up much higher than dubs and don't carry the big price tag. A bowman from the PNW suggested them to me, and I've been very happy. Racing in 28* and 30+ kts of breeze, I think my feet were the only thing that didn't get cold. I went w/ the "quick lace".

I would NOT get anything that is "water resistant". They need to be absolutely "WATER PROOF".

Re: First "off-season" delivery

I have a pair of Sorel boots that I got when I lived in Colorado years ago and they are waterproof, insulated, and don't mark up the deck. You can get a pair for $100-$150 at Zappos..

They make sailing in these frigid Florida winters much more comfortable.
