Do y'all carry full cold water survival suits or something like this?

My plans are for warm water (Gulf of Mexico), but what if I have to abandon ship in the winter time?

Good read. Here is a TV episode from Les Stroud's old Survivorman series where he spent a week in a life raft off the coast of Belize. Look it up and watch it on your online viewer de jour.

I carry both. Plus my life raft. Plus dinghy. Not surprisingly, the Admiral doesn't quibble about survival and safety, but YMMV.
