Cold is a relative term. Australia-cold or Canada-after-Chrismas cold?
What are the target water/air temps?

I also have some water in both my boats. Sounds normal...unless there is some kind of obvious blunder like sitting motionless with an open drain.

Hi, Australian cold, and not even cold Australian cold. 
Just looking for something more than my normal surf rash shirt for the early winter mornings.
cheers

I bought a couple of DermaTec tops for my time in South Africa and for the cooler mornings here in the Middle East winter. Works well for me.

The Dermatec tops are great but they won’t ship outside SA.  To the OP, seeing as you’re in Australia , try www.vaikobi.com .
Good range of product, varying degrees of warmth depending on what you need. I’d be surprised if you can’t get what you want from there. No association other than a regular and happy user!

There are simple ways around the shipping issue but since he's in Oz, the Vaikobi stuff looks good too.
