The GME portable is now in land fill salt water damage and the base in the boat also was under water for at least 2 hours but still works!

The real question is if the device was powered on. If its powered on you risk damage due to shorts.

Its actually part of the manufacturing process for PCBs to wash them with water.

Despite common belief, water does no damage to electronics if the electronics are not powered on.
