I use a Martin LXM acoustic. It is very stable in the marine environment, even with the high levels of humidity. It is basically made of a composite (seems like Formica) and the neck is highly laminated. The thing does not move and stays in tune amazingly well for an acoustic.

While it does not sound like a D-18, OM or 000 it sounds quite decent for a little composite guitar and I played all the "baby" or small models. It's actually got some bottom end to it.. Carbon Acoustics & Rain Song make them in carbon fiber but I've yet to play one in the baby size but have played both CA and Rain Song in the D size... The baby size fits the boat very well I just wish the nut width on the neck was a bit wider.

I brought my Santa Cruz OM on the boat once, won't do that again.....
