    Speaking of sea water........

    I was Garapata Beach one afternoon. The surf was rough, but I stood fairly far away from the edge all the way to the sandstone cliff. I was looking down at my GPS unit and suddenly a wave rushed in and covered me over my head! It was amazing that I wasn't carried out to sea (locals told me they lose a few tourists there like that). When the water receeded and I recovered, every pocket I had was filled with sand.

    I was wearing my Pentax digital spot meter and it never recovered. I got it repaired by Pentax for a reasonable sum. Garmin replaced my GPS for $99.

    So, I have to agree. Sea water is very corrosive. It eats away your wallet very very fast.

    Since I enjoy both photogaraphy and fishing I will keep this in mind should I run out of bobbers.
