I participate in a number of "frost bite" events in this area. The number one rule is (for small, open boats): don't go out alone, ever. I don't mean have someone with you in your boat, that's a given. I mean have someone with you in another boat. I don't know what the water temp is there, but you don't have long in a capsize or overboard situation if the water temp is below 50 degrees. Anyway, that's my take. Have fun, whatever you do.
