but to also protect the interior metals inside the car. If water pools it will cause rust as the interior of the car is not as well protected as the exterior.
Also air out the trunk every so often, you can do that by dropping the back seats down with the car windows open a bit.
Rust never sleeps, especially with salt water.
I was a SCUBA diver too, plus worked on and around the ocean my entire career, believe me, acdii is spot on - get a liner inside that trunk and air out the trunk often.
Also remember that the HVB is cooled by fans that take air from the inside of the passenger compartment.
If the inside of the car is extra humid because of wet diving gear in the trunk all the time, that humidity can get to the fans and HVB.
I'd be very disciplined and dry the gear before putting it in the car and take it out ASAP.
That thin trunk floor material isn't made to be a utility surface with heavy SCUBA tanks banging on it.
Be extra careful.
