Its the salty damp atmosphere that does the damage Mate...mine is dry as a bone but I still use corrosion guard on the back of all my kit/electrics in the consul....

That might help but I'm not sure if it would completely be watertight.

As you can see in this pic there is a tidy slope below the steering wheel and when seawater or rain water runs down it, it goes straight under the front of the seat into the jockey console.

p.s. sorry to hijack your thread Billy.

Yeh I have thought about that Billy, I think that it would work for rain water but for getting swamp while out in the rough stuff I think that replacing the witches hat with some trunking as in my previous link might be a better option.

Not sure how hard it would be to dismantle all the electric wiring and throttle and steering cables though But I guess that there is only one way to find out.... so looks like a winter project. As for the dram.... see you next May
