For offshore sailing, I would recommend either an SSB or a Satphone. With the SSB, you can also receive weather reports and communicate with weather routers, talk with buddy boats, and (with the appropriate add-ons) send and receive e-mail and weatherfaxes. With the satellite phone (i.e. Iridium) you can communicate anytime, anywhere to anyone who has a phone. One or the other is good for emergency communications.
