Receiving weather reports 150 miles offshore

Usually I do coastal cruising in the Gulf but I need to relocate my boat to the Chesapeake. If weather allows it I intend to jump from Stuart Florida directly to Beaufort,NC, a 480 mile leg riding the Gulf stream. No SSB on board and VHF nor cell phone would work while I will be about 150 miles off the coast.

What would be a good recommendation for a receiver to get reliable weather information without breaking the bank. I will install SSB eventually but don't want to go through the expense and time right now.

Thanks for any input.
