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

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
