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
