Water is a much more effective conductor of heat than is air.
Example: Heat your oven to 212 F, and bring a pot of water to a boil on the range. Stick your and in the oven, and it will barely even feel warm. Stick your hand in the water, and..... well......
I don't know what you are getting at with this? The water is 59 degrees. It will do much more damage to your body and feel much colder than if you were walking around outside on a 59 degree day.
If you are pointing out that for both hot and cold, water temp does not = air temp, then I agree.
i think he was agreeing with you

Listening to them ream him out, emasculate him, and tell him to get his sorry ass back on board to assist with the rescue was solid. Much respect to the junior officers on board, he should go straight to prison
