This past Sunday the water was 55º at 25 feet. Beast and Jose were toasty in their drysuits.
Sounds like 3mil territory to me.
Actually its funny. When I first moved here I visited a dive shop on Westheimer. A well meaning, young dive master started asking me about my diving. When he found out that I dove in a 3mil (2pc 3mil with .5mil skin, 7mil hood, 7mil gloves, 7mil boots) in 55F water he started lecturing me about how unsafe it was.
Personally I can do 2 40minute dives and then I get cold. But I just like the feel of the bouyancy with a 3mil so much more then the 7mil.
Maybe one day I'll be allowed to get a dry suit and then it wont matter.
