Cell phones and salt water...
Set your phone to vibrate, flash and ring on its most obnoxious settings. Hook up a charger and a hands-free mic/earbud attachment to it and extend the antenna to its fullest or use a remote antenna. Put the phone in a clear, heavy-duty zip-lock bag with a small handful of uncooked rice as a desiccant. Zip it shut and use a piece of tape to tightly lock the corner where the antenna and cables come out. Find a place below, out of harms way where you can reach and see the phone to work a call, as high as possible for best reception and in proximity to a charging outlet. A nice and cheep little folding can holder perhaps with some silly nautical motif can be hung up just for the purpose of holding the phone package and the mic/earbud attachment is the only thing that needs to be out in the elements.
