Whether we use them for navigation or Netflix, the creeping convenience of these devices has forever changed our lives afloat. This makes it all the more important to ensure they’re in good working order. While ideally we’d all exclusively rely on marinised electronics, most sailors bring their nonmarinised landlubbing gadgets aboard, often because they cost less or simply for convenience. Fortunately, there are several inexpensive ways to prolong their life, from storing devices with silica gel packs to applying anti-corrosion sprays. With a bit of time invested and a trip to the hardware store, you’ll be well on your way to protecting your favorite electronics aboard.
