By posting that you need to prove you're not an old fart, you've basically announced that you are.
PBzeer gives good advice, for an old fart...
and I'd second the idea of a wireless internet account via your cell phone provider. You might even be able to use your current cell phone instead of buying a separate aircard.
Be aware that the cellular internet connections won't be as fast as most of the WiFi connections, but will at least allow you to web browse, check e-mail, send small attachments, etc.
Fit the boat with jacklines, use a tether and harness, and STAY ON THE BOAT... especially when single-handing.

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.
