Ya know...If I could understand some to the communications language and references that you guys are throwing back and forth, I would probably have known enough about the subject to not have asked the question!

I take it that XM weather subscription with receiver, like the Garmin GDL 30a, will give me current weather in all coastal cruising situations ( as one responder could access weather with that system to Bahamas). And if I want to leave coastal cruising grounds for Bermuda or the BVI, that I should be equipped with SSB and fax reception equip. Is that the conventional wisdom out there? Is that the current state of art for offshore cruisers?

Been sailing all day with Dad, and I need a drink?
