Re: Custom Built On-board PC / Boatputer Advice

Think about internet connectivity. Maybe you'll use cellular or wifi. Cellular data can be expensive and only available at any reasonable speed in very civilized, populated areas. Free open wifi is disappearing fast. If you cruise and must work occasionally, you may find yourself needing to take your computer off the boat to obtain a wifi connection at a shop, who gives you the password for the price of a coffee/beer. I think portable matters in your situation.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
