Planning a kayak trip up to Georgian Bay sometime in July this year. I have a Kokatat Goretex drysuit but if the air temp is in the 80'sF range and what I just looked up online that water temps are between 60F and 65F in July I was wondering what would you were? I could just use my drysuit and do some rolls to cool off but not sure that would be all that great. I have a solid roll and can cowboy scramble in pretty rough conditions plus paddle float by re-enter and roll myself up with float in really rough conditions.Installing electric bilge pump as soon as it warms up, have all the parts now.
Would possibly a shorty wetsuit 2mm be better. I never owned a wetsuit so no experience with wetsuits. Any other thoughts?
Also carry VHF and have PLB. Kayak Greenlander Pro use greenland paddle and carry storm paddle for spare.
