I have heard so many times that people lost their mobile telephones
overboard. In many cases phones
were in their pockets but tough guys were too proud to confess their ‘left-handedness’…
The damage was usually multiple – they have lost all their phone numbers and data while the devices
were useless. Firstly, it is very useful to save your data
on backup memory on your PC or through one of backup applications. Secondly, you should work on your stability
but some more mobile telephone could suffer until you enhance your skills…
However, there is help for your phones
and other electronic devices
. There is a wide range of super-sturdy waterproof bags and cases
available to protect your gear form water, sand, dirt, dust etc.
offers a wide range of waterproof cases for devices such as mobile telephones, tablet computers, cameras, e-readers… Especially useful and popular are their multipurpose waist-packs, belt-packs and arm-packs.
dry bags, pouches and backpacks found their purpose not only when sailing
but also doing other adventure sports
such as kayaking, rafting, cycling, mountain biking, trekking or just camping.
Their products are available at specialized stores
or through very well organized online store
, for reasonable prices.
I have very good experience with their products, but with one remark. Since all those products are waterproof
and very well sealed, it is recommendable to open the case or bag from time to time and dry the interior because there is always a possibility of condensation
which could be harmful for your devices.
I have mentioned OverBoard because I am very satisfied with their products but I’m pretty sure that they are not the only manufacturer of waterproof cases on the market. Improve your stability onboard but work it out with your gadgets protected!
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
