Thanks for any input on internet connections, satelite, radar, GPS, wind generators and desalinators!
Access to the internet at sea is still expensive in terms of the equipment required. However, access to email via Hf radio is free via Winlink (provided one has a ham licence) and via sailmail relatively inexpensive - something like $250 pa.
As to the other questions raised - answers are to be found in our various forums via our search
facility and of course in our cruiser's WIKI
