Re: How's the GSM coverage on Chesapeake Bay?
Of course there are also a couple of more conventional water-resistant phones out there. Motorola Defy, Samsung Rugby and Rugby Smartphone, all available GSM and unlocked. In the US GSM means mainly AT&T or T-Mobile or an AT&T "nvmo" reseller.
Verizon also usually has a waterproof Casio model available.
And best of all, you can use it as an everyday phone instead of leaving it on the boat.
