Being in a wet environment, a.k.a the sea, comes with its joys and its challenges. One of them is the risk of damaging something by getting it wet. So our first tip for the best boating gadget on your Sea Ray boat is not a specific device, per se, but is to actually make sure you have everything waterproofed. Here are some cool ideas to start waterproofing all you can:
#1 Taking Pictures
Today, waterproofed cameras such as GoPros or other action cameras are quite common. Some phones might even be IP67 and IP68 certified, which means they can actually be used as underwater cameras, just pay attention to the specifications of the manufacturer. There is even the possibility to buy some specific cases for your regular camera or DSLRs. Having a camera that switches from the sunpad of your Sea Ray to the blue waters of the Adriatic Sea comes in super handy on your next Sea Ray escapade in Croatia.
#2 Writing and Reading
This tip is made for those that love to travel even with just a book, and trust us, there is nothing like relaxing on the sun deck of a Sea Ray. However, today there are some possibilities to extend the reading and writing to a less dryer environment.
