Is pretty reasonable to expect reception over hundreds of miles with a marine SSB and thousands of miles are possible on upper bands in the right conditions. Personally, unless you are a real Ham radio enthusiast, I don't get the need for a Ham radio on a boat. To make that exotic connection to some user in a far away land takes tons of patience, time, skill and luck. For me, there at too many other things to do on the water.... Like sailing. To each their own.

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