Yep, don't count on the battery compartment of the yellow etrex being water tight.
The battery hatch that came with the etrex fit fairly loosely and was definatly not water tight.
When I oredered a marine mounting base for the unit. It came with a new batery hatch that fit much tighter and may be a little better at keeping moisture out.
