In Tampa the Water is in the Mid 50's? You have to be kidding! The coldest I ever got in Florida
was in the springs in Northern Florida
and that was only in the low 70's. WHERE exactly are you diving that it gets so cold?
Salty, get yourself a one piece semi dry with wrist and leg dams and a hood
. a good 7 mil will last you down into the high 40's with go. Every new years day we do a morning dive for as long as we can stay down here in Texas
. No drysuits allowed..... Typically a 20-40 minute dive and it's snowed on us at least once.... but you have bragging rights for the rest of the year. That and you can't tell the boys from the girls for about 3 or 4 hours.
