On our 3.8 we strap the fule tank up front to get the weight in the right place. We have a handheld GPS on velcro to the tank (with a lanyard tied on for insurance) as a great solution in front of the driver. VHF is a Silva handheld also on velcro. Sure you could do similar with Depth?

I think most of the products of both those mfgr's are rated to IPX7, which is a commercial spec, rated 30 minutes submergence at 1 meter, as I recall. Usually touted as "waterproof" in literature.

Don't know what the Mil Spec is watertightness, but when I was building military avionics, the waterproofing was at the board level, rather than the box level.


Oh, yeah; Genoa: I had a new mount built for my electronics. It was an expensive custom job, but came with a free hull, motor, and tubes.
