    Sp long as the poly has had the chance to fullly dry and cure it will be fine. I've used both oil and water based poly on different things and found the oil to resist salt better. I haven't found any ill effects that would warrant paying for $40/qt for 'food grade' poly.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
