You could always have it shipped to the marina, where you're getting aboard the boat, or to the local American Express office in NYC... AMEX is good about that if you have an AMEX card...

BTW, the Iridiums are by and far the easiest to use, since with the B-terms, you generally have to setup the antenna and then aim it... the Mini-M series has a single-piece antenna that just needs to be aimed as well, but generally it is already put together.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
