Thanks for the suggestion. What sort of air and water temperatures
would you expect for the area in January? I am not certain if there

Other ideas out there?

I was in the water through out the winter last year. When it went below 40
degrees I used about 4 cups of black tea and 4 glasses water before going in the
water for 20 or 30 minutes for my 3/2 wet suits heating system. I was still
trying to plane at the time so I was in the water more than on it.
We have had 75 degree days in February with water temps down below 40
