It is mystery why some manufacturers have no throttle arm rest. I was in a 2013 Tige and was also missing an arm rest. Do the designers actually drive these boats?

The air temp makes a big difference. Typically wear 2 mm Neoprene top when water or air are 65 to 70
Neoprene top and bottom or shorty (2mm) when temps are 60 - 65
Dry suit when water is 35 to 60.
