The Wirie Wi Fi booster

One of the many challenges that a cruiser faces is internet access, it kinda pisses me off that I have two GPS's aboard Si Bon which receive all of their info from a broad range of satellites but can't get internet access at sea without spending a fortune. While in port you either have to drag your computer off the boat into a wet dinghy and once ashore go find an internet cafe....or HOPEFULLY have a Wi Fi booster that will enable you to get online from the comfort of your own boat. That brings us to "The Wirie" a very simple, inexpensive and durable wi fi booster. I attach it to an extra halyard, run it up my mast a ways, put the USB cable through a hatch plug in and log on...but does it work? Well it does seem that my computer is running a lot faster here at the marina, but only time will tell...soo if you send me am IM on facebook and it takes me an hour to get back to you then we'll know that "The Wirie" is a bust..or that Steve should work on his typing skills.
