    Gear

    I'm going on the lake in March and need some warming gear. This is my list...

    - Motion PFD (orange and black)
    - Switch pants
    - wetsuit 4/3mm

    and then maybe some shoes. I need to know where to get the PFD. www.seadoo.com has it, but you can't buy it there. I can go to www.slipperywetsuits.com or whatever for the switch pants and there are various websites to find wetsuits. I guess what I'm asking is where can I find the PFD and if you know any websites that have nice wetsuits (3mm) for a good price.

    thanx in advance

    Hey, I just read a few of your recent posts...
    Take it for whats worth, but if you only have just the one ski and you plan on doin some cold water riding by yourself and you run into any type of problems while out in the ocean, you might want to pick up a marine handheld vhf. Cell phones dont always work off shore, especially if they get wet. They run about a hundred, and if you couple that with a portable gps, you'll never have to worry if something does happen.

    1.) Good PFD
    2.) Full body wetsuit
    3.) switch pants to wear over wetsuit (work great as a wind breaker)
    4.) shoes (something like this to protect your feet especially when walking on the lake, river, etc. bottom http://www.slipperywetsuits.com/gear..._group_id=5068)
    5.) Gloves (something like this http://www.slipperywetsuits.com/gear..._group_id=5044)
    6.) Some people like helmets in cold weather because they protect their face from the elements. It's a personal preference things though.

    If you can find one, Mustang Survival used to make a cold weather suit for PWC.
    I have on and it is toasty warm even at 15f. It also has a coast guard approved life jacket incorporated in the jacket.
    Wool socks inside neoprene booties will keep your feet warm.
    A helmet is best to keep your head warm.
    NEVER ride alone in the cold. If you blow off an exhaust tube and sink there isn't any gear that will sustain you for long. All the safety gear will do is make it easier to find your body. That may be extreme but we see it up here with snowmobilers all of the time.

    Here is a pic of the suit.

    Mustang survival jacket. The pfd is built in.

    Also, for booties consider dive booties for cold weather gear.

    You can usually get good deals on Slippery at www.parkeryamaha.com
