I like those Columbia brand shorts. I think they’re called backcast III shorts. I cut out the inside liner. Don’t hang below my knees. Hate shorts that go below my knees. Very fast dry. On sale at Kolls. $ 22.49.
If you’re going to anchor up at SCI expect to lose anchor,chain and a good length of rode as well. The 9 and runway areas are brutal ! 22 lb Bruce and 30 ft of chain always held. Sometimes too well !! This was on a Farallon 28.
I have that 70 psi hotshot as well. 6 gal per minute. I haven’t found anything better. I think it has more pressure than my house. I haven’t had any below desk leak issues. I think it has a 3 year warrantee too. Bought mine from Hodges Marine website.
