How about you leave the phone in a dry bag in the cabin? Don't you go sailing to get away from the thing anyway?

I watched one of the product videos provided here and it appeared to demonstrate that the I phone functioned in the case under water, but was of little use, other than possibly texting (no audio connections, etc.). I keep a uncovered Ipod (connected to my sound system) in a pouch directly inside my companionway. In good weather, I can pass it around the cockpit so people can choose music, look at pictures etc. In snotty weather it stays inside the companionway, as choosing tunes is probably the last thing on my mind! I tried various cases, but found they compromised function.
For a phone I have a water RESISTANT Verizon Boulder that has served me well on board, and at the Beach. Though it is certainly not as "smart" as many would like. If I drop it in...Oh Well, off to Verizon!
