Laptops at Sea
<HTML><!-- eWebEditPro --><P>Will a good quality laptop really hack it in a marine environment? </P><P><STRONG>Jim Sexton responds:</STRONG></P><P>Yes, almost all desktop or laptop computers can handle the marine environment if they aren’t exposed to direct contact with water or rain. Spraying the interior electronic components with&nbsp;CorresionX will provide further protection. Most laptops operate at high temperatures that keep moisture from forming. When the laptop isn't being used, it should be stored in a waterproof container while on board. A large Tupperware container should do the trick. </P></HTML>
