    2. Dry them out and place in the original box (or suitable alternative)
    3. Contact diverdave member on here

    Kind words. I have retired from diving, but still repair waders when asked. If anyone want their waders repaired, to dive suit standards, just pm me.

    A word of caution about Simms. If your waders have a seam leak then you must send them back to Simms for repair. Repairing a seam leak yourself voids their wader warranty. I learnt this the hard way.
