seems like we can all agree that when the conditions rock and the vis is good we stay in as long as possible... personally, since I drive 2.5 hours each way, I like to get my money's worth and will stay in for at least 3 hours... if the conditions rock i may not stay in much longer....maybe 4 hours.. but i get pretty tired after that..

Since my bottom time is not that much..MAYBE 45 seconds or so i tend to do a ridiculous amounts of dives in those hours and it totally exhausts the system.  lately when i go with matt and jason and those guys i have found that 3 hours is just the beginning and i like that... cause my old dive buddies would take forever to get in the water that most of our time spent "diving" was simply getting wet.  these guys its suit up and get the hell in the water which i love doing.

next year i will be progressing towards spearfishing a lot more and ab diving a lot less, so i would imagine i will be spending more time in the water... only a few times have i gotten cold, and never since i got a semi-dry suit.. its not open cell, but honestly, somtimes i am actually hot in the dang thing so going open cell actually scares me.

I think around an hour or so is average I like to hang out in the water longer if vis and no damn rip to bug me. Those are the days at the abalone supermarket  :headbang: I usually leave by 4:30 or 5:00 am and return 11 or 12 hours later 3 hrs up 3 hrs back. then :occasion14: tall tales time!

Tom, where do you live that it is a 3 hour drive?  That's what it is for me.

3 hours from concord? you guys are adding a half hour to your drive however you slice it.. lol.. i am in lafayette and it takes me almost exactly 2.5hours to get up there.

glaucus,

i wear a 1 pc 7ml semi-dry, hood attached.. so it has seals around my wrists and ankles to keep the water my body warms up in the suit so i stay warm longer by not using more body heat to constantly reheat water as it cycles through the suit.. i highly recommend it... ive seen those blokes squeezing into those open cell and yes they do seem cool, but i got a lot of body fa...er... weight on me so i have yet to get cold in my suit.... and frankly its easy to get in and out of.

Seems like my options are pretty clear.  Keep on freezing my balls off: :crybaby2:  Stop being such a cheap ass and get an open cell suit: :dontknow:  Increase my body fat % until I'm warm for 4 hours at a time.   :laughing4:

Now I just have to decide. :help:

Go with the open cell if you add body fat you lose cardio, break out that wallet and give up the shells, BTW the free dive shop will be having its annual end of year sale next month first come first serve keep your eyes open

I agree with Stacy and Kaveh, buy the suit (you'll love the damn thing), and drink more! No reason you cant do both, I DID.  :occasion14:
