WiFi on the Boat?

There are some lengthy, knowledgeable threads on this topic at the SSCA Discussion Board in the Communications section - They are very thorough.

The bottom line is that you can''t expect much more than 1 NM range unless you start getting quite fancy (and $$)...and even then, more than a few miles is unrealistic. Occasionally, a boat will exceed 1 NM but that may well be because of the height of the shoreside wifi system and the boat using a directional vs. omni antenna.
