SSD's are the way to store and they are now amazingly cheap (esp in Europe :) )

Computer, cameras, phones etc do not like salt water/air environment at all.

My computers are expendable after 2 years. The laptop I'm on right now is 3 years old and just last week did a weird Black Screen of Death so I know its not reliable anymore. I am already hunting up a bargain port to replace 2 laptops and 2 phones. Phones get gunk in the USB ports (as does everything else) especially from being in your pocket. This fiberous gunk then gets and stays moist.

Any moving part on a boat is wrong.. and a HDD is a moving part spinning at a zillion RPM so SSD drives are totally the way to go.

Keeping backup drives etc in a "Pelikan" case with dessicant will help. but you cant keep laptops and phones in them as they are inue all the time.

Going in the dinghy I always have phones, electronics in Zip Lock bags.
