Question wireless Internet in Marina del Rey??

My boat is in B basin in Marina del Rey (near Tahiti and Via Marina) and... well, I'm trying to get broadband Internet access on my boat.

Is anyone familiar with WiFi coverage in the B basin? I can find a couple signals that show up on my computer that seem suspiciously like they might be commercial subscription services: one called "sails" and one called "CDHNET", but of course there is no contact information.

Is anyone familiar with coverage that I can sign up for in this area?

From what I could obtain here are local hotspots:

Monterey
Shane's Irish Pub - get password with purchase - 401 Lighthouse Ave - 831-646-2005
Bay Books and Coffee Shop - in Coffee shop area - 316 Alvarado St - (831) 375-1855
Morgan's Coffee and Tea - 498 Washington St. - 831-373-1479
London Bridge Pub - Wharf #2, - 831.655-2879
Cibo Restaurant - 301 Alvarado St - 831-649-8151
Plumes Coffee House - 400 Alvarado Street - (831) 373-4526
Cafe Noir - 365 Calle Principal inside the Osio Theater
City of Monterey Public Library - 625 Pacific Street - 831.646.5601
Spindrift Inn - free for guests only - 652 Cannery Row - (831) 646-8900
Blue Moon Restaurant - free for guests of Spindrift Inn - 654 Cannery Row - (831) 375-4155

As for the two that you are picking up - one is probably related to the marina (sails - my guess) - contact the harbormaster for info, heck you should be able to connect to it regardless if it is free...

But the above are locations that offer wifi for free (less with password)...
