We have not had a problem. The dodger provides good cover from top and sides. If we get caught in conditions that are so bad that everything is battened down, I know how to read and use a paper chart for navigation. I put the chart in a waterproof chart thingy. Depending on where we're going our route was already plotted on both the electronic and paper charts before we left the dock/anchorage.
