Providing Immersion Suits in the Gulf of Maine
This number one safety suit is designed to protect your crew from hypothermia when stranded in cold waters. Immersion Suits are waterproof dry suits that help your body temperature from dropping too quickly in freezing water temperatures—knowing when and how to use your suit before its needed is essential. They are designed to be put on before your body hits the water in order to seal out the moisture and be active.
Pro Tip: Keep two plastic bags stored with your suit so you can slip them over your boots to save time in an emergency.
Immersion suits are also designed to inflate to help keep you afloat face up, which can be challenging after some time in cold waters as your body temperature starts to drop. Keep in mind the average annual Atlantic Ocean water temperature off the coast of Maine is in the 40s. Knowing what you are up against before you go out all year round is essential.
