Thanks Jeff - I will have a look at the kayak stuff, I already have a load of roll-top dry bags so am covered there, this was really just about having a handy pocket on the console...

I was going to suggest similar. Like this: Allen Inspection Hatch Bag 6" With Grey Cover A0537-BAG-GY | Dinghy Sailing at sailboats.co.uk probably needs very little room inside the console and the sock will flop down.

Thanks for the link - not quite what I was after for this application, but look like really good quality products.

Thanks for this - definitely one solution. I'm not sure I was very clear in my description but I'm increasingly leaning towards having something which provides reasonably secure stowage i.e. my phone isn't going to jump out and overboard, but which I can easily access with one hand. I'm less worried about it being waterproof, but ideally some level of splash protection.

I am wondering if a custom pocket with a taught elastic closure at the top might be the way to go. Will maybe ask the cover people if they could knock something up...

Thanks for all the suggestions and keep them coming! R

Hard to beat ziploc bags :-). Then you just need a storage location and it only needs to be mostly waterproof. Also rather than a charging socket, which is pretty handy, perhaps one of those extra batteries/chargers they sell for USB devices? My kids have them and they are effective and cheap.

Nice little SR that!!. hope this helps. Made by Henshaws, I believe Whisper on here has a Genuine Avon Pocket of the small size, if you ask nicely Im sure he will sort you out. I used a roll up marine bag inside

If waterproofing is not on the agenda then search for "Dinghy Halyard Bags" - i.e. something like these:

Blue Performance Small Cockpit Storage Bag - Sewn Storage & Covers - Discount Marine Chandlery and Sailing Equipment. Bargain Boat Spares and Clothing

But they are designed for tidiness not water protection.

That said I'd not have a phone in any waterproof container or my jacket pocket without it being protected in some way. The time you need your phone out things may not be as calm as when you put it in the container. Even if it has stayed dry in the container when you open it to take it out it will risk getting wet...

Cheers Matt! That's really useful thanks - those hypalon pockets could also be good for keeping the mooring lines dry and tidied away... I will drop Whisper a line to see if he still has one and to check the dimensions.

This is much more like what I originally had in mind, but I didn't know what they were called - thank you. I will do a bit more searching on 'halyard bags'. Re: phone storage generally, I take your point, but to be completely honest I've never had a problem using my phone completely unprotected on the boat just being careful, and I do have a waterproof VHF for emergencies. This is really just a convenient pocket to store the phone in good conditions and within easy reach...

Looking through ebay and at army surplus I stumbled across the following options:









The last couple are designed for paintballing I think, unfortunately they're a little to big for the space I had in mind. Not sure if this stuff would hold up to the marine environment very long but they will be under the boat cover when not in use and pretty cheap...

Cheers!
