1. Item: a remote Wifi antenna; ours snaps into a cheap fitting on the boom - we can often get internet on the boat
2. Tip: have really good ground tackle with all chain anchor rode; Many anchorages in the Pacific are quite deep compared to (for example) the Caribbean so you need 200' at least to go with an excellent primary anchor; one of the new generation anchors (Manson Supreme, Rocna, Spade) will be better than one of the traditionals

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
