Well I did it- $475 for last years kokatat goretex drysuit from nrs but I have heard the neck gasket takes time to get used to and if trimmed you cannot return. But this thing means no more clammy neoprene. And they say an actress in Goldfinger died when she was painted with gold paint because her skin could not breathe. Does someone have a guide to cutting neck gasket ? What if I cut too much? Is there some kind of cream to reduce chaffing? Yesterday I was quite the hero to some kids whose bike had been stolen and tossed into the river a mile from Canada. I wore my neoprene and waded out and dove down and rescued their bike. Then drove off with boat on car. I do not think they realized I was wearing neoprene for the 50 degree water. Please do not tell them. Maybe they will believe all Kaywakers are of Viking blood but alas we no longer rape and pillage the coast. Now we specialize in good deeds of Herculine nature because we are stoic in nature. It is great to be a kaywaker. And I might just have the worlds fastest kayak. West side boat shop thunderbolt. 21 feet long(3 ft longer than K1), 18in long and 26# with a round bottom. But we are stable "cause the paddle is 6ft long therefore we are 6 ft wide with a magically low center of gravity that helps us excell to the nautical law of slender bodies. And they say butterflies and hummingbirds should not be able to fly but born of water my wing blade and I were born to rip holes in the water as we blast along in the power of God Almighty!
