Hello Jeff, I always read your articles in Pacific Yachting magazine. I live in Bellingham and cruise the BC central and north coasts each summer. Cell phone coverage stops at about Port Hardy and by Cape Caution, there's nothing, even with the Wilson cell booster I have that normally adds at least one bar. I've been considering a DeLorme inReach device to use with my Android smart phone. inReach uses the Iridium satellite system which seems to be the best system for the mountainous terrain along the coast - no southern 'window' required. The prices for Globalstar phones, though, have come down a lot. What phone or system are you recommending to your customers these days?

Do the Raymarine Seatalk HS cables differ from one another? I'm networking a c90w and c140W and cannot use a weatherproof connection at both ends since the cable opening will not allow a weatherproof connection to fit through. What should I do?
