Hey DD, great post and I agree with coldwater and adshepard, you need a dry suit. Send me a pm with your address and I will ship you a neoprene divers drysuit, the neck seal leaks so it is no good for diving anymore but it is 3/4" of neoprene with built in size 10 boots. It takes up space in my dive locker and you will be toasty warm and very bouyant, you can e3ven throw on a pair of coveralls over it and trash them instead of the suit. Nothing worse than puncturing your drysuit in cold water. This is no joke and an honest offer for you to continue this amazing haul and be warm and safe!
