Waterfront Winter Ops - Cold Water

M/N Pat Showell led a great discussion and presentation today covering cold water survival. After the lecture it was time to test how well the survival suits aboard every ship protect you in cold water. We have all worn them in a pool, but what about in the 29 degree water of Hague Basin? Turns out surprisingly well. After five minutes in the water we were perfectly warm and dry!
