Interesting thread. I am doing my 2 day PowerBoat Level 2 course this weekend. The weather forecast temperature will make brass monkeys wince in pain.

Have dry suit and fleece onesie. Sealskins Extreme gloves. Not sure what to wear on feet to keep them warm (I suffer with poor circulation). Any recommendations? Drysuit has built in feet. The Sealskins socks look good but wonder if they will fit inside my Gul neoprene dinghy boots. Do I need to buy sailing wellies and if so, which ones? Any other suggestions?

Grateful for your advice. Time is of the essence as need it sorted by Friday.

Tight dinghy boots will be cold for sure.
Having boots 2 sizes bigger for the winter will allow for thick socks and trapped air layers.
However for RIB duties I have some old waterproof snow boots (Lidl)
they are toastie but not technically wet gear. Some clubs get funny about that sort of thing with rescue duties.
