Check this ukelele guy out. He is beyond amazing, I would call it masterful.

Ovation acoustic 1997. It has held up well in the boat world.

OK, one more. Not a baritone, but James Hill is so da__ good. Oh yeah, I'm a sucker for the latin beats.

Notice his uke is the perfect size for a boat. Of course, my uke is much bigger than his uke.

FWIW, I've been toying with a new percussion pad thingy. 12 assign-able pads, plus foot pedal inputs, etc. Needs an amp, though; don't know that I want to devote that much space on the boat, and I doubt my little battery-powered Fender Mini would survive the kick bass

Interesting, thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Might even couple that with the "graphite" idea in a couple of the links above...
