my solution for dry warm feet: rubber boots made of EVA and merino socks from Woolpower (800 grams) and a drysuit. Warm feet in all conditions.

Thank you photofr. I've an 2017 ACE 14 x 27" and wear 7mm booties. Having moved from temperate Hong Kong where we paddled year round and only ever had to don 3mm booties for Dec - Mar, it has been a shock to the system moving to the NE of the US. So your idea to plug the holes is a good one and something that I will do next year, as the worst has passed...i hope...

Yeah many race boards have now gone very narrow with a fat wide tail for stability rounding buoys -> dropping the straight line pin to pin concept.  As well for surf stepping back to balance on a wide tail is much easier.  Allows for more varied use than just flat water.

Proper has it right.  With a drysuit and neoprene boots -> can go out in very cold rough conditions with little concern.  Always stay bone dry and warm.  ;)
