is pretty close to what we see in Vancouver in any building.
[ no motion and the power is anywhere from 100v to 120 v with fluctuations in the system ]
but the salty, humid air, it's here.
[ 60 to 80 percent humidity in winter, makes -4C feel like -15C ]
With the power in the newer models, going laptop instead of desktop for ship-board computing would make it easier, the power supplies for the laptops are another layer of protection for the dirty power issue.
the laptop hardware is built for the motion issues being aboard a ship brings better than desktops are.
I also know that while the "Marina" claims x voltage for their power outlets, they don't always deliver it. often it is 10 to 20 percent below advertised voltage.
