Being that the OP was talking about being 20-60 miles off-shore, and with the unpredictability of weather and WiFi availability, I would not trust being caught beyond the range of WiFi and not have something capable of receiving we-fax on board.

It's just too cheap and easy to put together a reliable system to receive faxes over shortwave to not use it.
