Ian,
Got myself my first DSLR yesterday, a Nikon D40X twin lens VR kit. Nikon Aus are giving a $200 cash back promo. So watch out you might have some compatition in a couple or 20 years

While out on a sail my wife Julie turned and said to me, "We got a good life."

I've yet to get a snap of some of the things I've seen that would fit here, but simply being in a position to have seen them, is all that matters. Yes, like cameraderie, I feel blessed in this respect. (Depending on the cost of maintainance, not sure about the lucky part being your avatar (G) )

While anchored in Potter Cove - north end of Prudence Island, Narragansett Bay, we've enjoyed many a sunset:

Great camera, congratulation. Remember though, that DSLR's let in more salt air than do DSLR-like. I have an almost new Canon EOS 4000 that has been completely destroyed by salt air in about 5 months. But then again, I live aboard.

Ian-

The equipment would last longer if you stopped storing it in the bilge. I would agree with Ian... you need to have some way to store the equipment to help protect it from the humid/salt air. A pelican case with a dessicant packet in it is a good start.

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.
