Yip, as a general rule you'll find it easier to find people on here who have had disappointing experience from Cobra waterproofing or build quality than been delighted with it, including me - although I have no experience with that actual model. They do serve a market but are clearly built to a price. If I had a yacht and wanted a spare I might go there again. For wet open boats I think they are potentially a false sense of security.
