Can you put them on ahead of time and keep them on between dives or are they too slippery for that on boat (wet or dry) like some other synthetic socks are?
About the same as bare feet.
I generally put them on right before I put on my wetsuit, and never remove them between dives. They are not slippery on the boat deck. They are thin so I would not recommend too much walking around. I use Mares closed foot fins and used to get a sore area on my foot after a few dives. These solved that problem perfectly. I keep a spare new pair in my regulator case because I wouldn't want to dive without them.
I'm on my second pair of these and have never experienced them being too slippery to keep on between dives. The lycra is smooth, so perhaps on a completely smooth boat deck that is wet there may be an issue with them being slippery but if the deck has any kind of texture to it then my opinion is that these will be fine. I personally tend to take these off between dives, not because they are slippery, but to prevent them from getting damaged.
That said, given that these are a smooth lycra I would imagine they would behave like other socks you might have tried. If those felt slippery to you, chances are these probably will also.
Depending on the surface of the deck you are on, they tend to be a little slippery, especially when wet. Being thin, I don't intend to wear them other than when I have my boots on. I bought them as protection against chafing.
They did not seem especially slippery when wet but our boat deck was roughened for traction.
I don't find them to be slippery at all, wet or dry. I don't even look at my other synthetic socks anymore.
I wear them under my dive boots and leave both on between dives, so slipping is not an issue for me. If you are wearing the sock only, I would take them off while on a boat, in between dives.
I put them on right before I puth the boots on. You can keep them on without the boots, they are not slippery, but will get worn out pretty quick.
I only use them with my boots on.They would be slippery on a fiberglass boat surface

They are very simular to other synthetic socks so that leads me to believe they are equally slippery. However, I do find them comfortable to relax in during my SI on warm days.
They are too slipery to walk around. And they snag too. I tqke them off in between dives.
My husband puts them on right before his booties and he does not remove his booties between dives. I think it would be slippery if the boat had no carpet. And if it does the socks would fray. But they are great against blisters.
They are the same as other socks. They have no grip on them. They would be slippery.
I had no problem, but they do slip on and off easily.
