As I remember it, the rubber survival suit was a bad joke. Everyone knew that to go into the water in the kind of weather that would call for such protection was suicidal. It was bad enough to spend any time in an open boat or on a raft in fair-weather latitudes; not many survived in the frigid northern waters. Just thinking about it gives me the willies.
