Corrosion Protection?

I was wondering if there are any products, spray based, that anyone is familiar with for protecting electronics.

I would like to provide some additional protection to the inside of my battery compartment for my headlamp & back up flask lights for this season.

Thanks.

Roop

Try a thin film of lithium grease on metal parts.

Do you really need a light on your flask? I'm trying to think of a purpose for one and I just can't. Best I can come up with is to help you find it in the dark. :hehe:

It's a combination flask/EPIRB for the drunken kayaker!

Lights up when you drop it or you go in!!

Kegs are generally used to slow the boat down by lashing lines around them and tossing overboard - kinda like sea anchors:hehe:

I don't understand why anybody needs a light on their flask, either

I use kegs to slow sharks down... I usually put three in em, slow em down.. drive em into shallow water and drown em.

John

I meant to talk to you about that. How about instead of all that time rigging the barrels this year, we just tie the line to the Penguins leg & let him slug it out with the man-eater for us?

Moose mane courtesy of Frenchcreek.

I apologize that I grabbed the wrong bag and gave you the small shank. Let me know if you need/ want more.
