similar, picture the set then an external surround with a clear plastic face on the face are buttons and dials which go through the housing to operate the set. im sure the lifeboats use them , i just cannot find them anywhere.

I'm not convinced that is as big an issue as you think (if it has been well designed ergonomically) - do you randomly push buttons on handhelds in choppy conditions?

Do you know where the moisture is coming from:

- sea water? - where/how are you mounting them and where is it getting in
- rain water? - where is it getting in? does the boat have a cover etc?
- condensation? - look at the ventilation of the boats in storage?

some people resort to butchering their radios and adding silica gel inside the casing (search for a post by biffer I think with tips on special screws for the job IIRC?) - if they are out of warranty and the display is fogging but functionally OK this might be worth a try before splashing the cash on replacements.

The boxes you are probably thinking of are the DS-Neptune Developments boxes:

Radio Enclosures

Be warned, they are not cheap!

Cheers

You need these guys - not cheap but they supply the RNLI and it will definitely work.
