A wetsuit is for being submerged in the water all the time, i.e. surfing, diving. Yet there are drysuits for diving too. I wouldn't want to sit in a wetsuit for most of my "captain" time in the boat. Neoprene is a pain in the a$$ in my opinion, for covering your whole body with it anyhow.
Save your money, get a one piece, built in socks, Gore-Tex construction, and latex gaskets. The giant front metal zipper on mine is great but some prefer other options when it comes to the zipper.
And did I read someone actually talking about wearing a wetsuit OVER a drysuit??? Oh my goodness... Ya don't know how a wetsuit works...
