Charlie-

I don't think he's thinking of hosting any site or e-commerce solutions from the boat. Just that he wants to be able to run a web-design business fromt the boat—which generally requires reliable and fairly high-speed internet access. He also wants to be able to run his wife's jewelry e-commerce site from the boat... and if she is the designer/maker of the jewelry, then she needs to have access to both reliable internet and reliable shipping—neither of which is normally the case on a cruising boat.

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.
