I'd recommend that you put two speakers in the cabin and two outside. You can use the fader to control how much goes to which set..
A remote in the cockpit is worth its weight in gold, especially if it gives you control over your iPod. Recently found out that some of the automotive Sony units can use the waterproof wired Sony remotes.
Yes, you should have water resistant speakers. If the speakers are not box mounts and are being mounted in a section of the coaming that opens to the interior of the boat, I would highly recommend that you mount them beneath deckplates. The reason for this is simple. If the boat gets pooped in heavy weather, the speakers can become a very large opening for water to enter the boat's interior if you can't seal them off.
Cam's got a good thread on speakers, and I'll see if I can dig it up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
