Re: Changes You've Witnessed in S Surf ...
Having been Navy trained recruits are taught to abandon ship in wool because it keeps you warm when wet. A consequence is that when I went to beach fishing, around the same time I enlisted in the Naval reserve, I wore my Navy issue wool sweater. My Coast Guard daughter, Susan, keep me in those wool sweaters which I have worn all my life and wear them today even in hunting. Poly against the skin and wool over is truly survival gear. But Hook still has a point on better garment choices. Clothing has continued to evolve, especially in footwear.
