RIBase
I doubt the connections will stand up to salt water too well but if you keep them well lubed I can't see it being a problem.

You might want to check if the mike and earpiece are properly waterproof. It rarely gets so wet in a bike helmet that water would be a problem but on a rib it's a different matter

I've got one of those motorbike intercoms sets - used to use it with an open face helmet but with a visor in all weathers with no problems - just tuck the control box inside your jacket. I removed the sponge microphone covers though as they just got full of water and held it whilst without them the water just ran away. - above 55mph on the bike though the wind noise just got too much to hear the other person.
