  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  2. Thats the same as the one in my link but I paid £16
  3. Just to wind up this thread I bought one of these and wifi reception is now very good.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1000M-Outdoor-High-Power-Wireless-802-11b-g-n-USB-2-0-Adapter-Wifi-Rocket-w/124369668599?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  4. It won't make any difference what we think. The backhanders will have been paid and the deal done, much like the give away for peanuts of BWML by CRT
  5. What a waste of time and licence fee.
  6. Thanks flyboy. Thats a good price.
  7. I though of that so tried moving desktop to other end of boat but it was no better. That looks like the business and reasonable price too. Thanks.
  8. The marina has contacted the company which contracts for the wifi as I am not the only one experiencing the problem. They are supposed to be sending an engineer but that was 10 days go. I would but this is a much nicer berth and the old berth is very badly silted up making it difficult to get in and out.
  9. I am one of those heratics who dont use a smartphone. Just been playing around with changing my desktop location and if i put the screen in front of the galley window I get a good signal. Just not very practical to use it there!
  10. unfortunately my nieghbors are very nice people so sinking thier boat not an option. I am meaning free wifi provided by the marina.
  11. Since I moved berths my marina wifi has been poor to non existant. I put this down to the fact that I am further from the signal and have several boats between me and the mast. I think I need an external antenae to bring the signal into the boat and connect to my desktop. Am I correct and any reasonable priced recommendations please.
  12. But all boatbulding materials have disadvantages. Have you priced Osmosis treatment recently? And the fact that your boat can be out of commision for a year or more to get the moisture levels down. I did a full Osmosis treatment myself on my last yacht including relaminating with bi-axial cloth and waiting for the moisture readings to drop when you want to go sailing is a nightmare. With a good wooden boat maintainance is ongoing and much of the work can take place in the winter months. As for the Mull of Kintyre the trick is to stay close inshore. And I mean very close inshore. If I remember the pilot correctly it says you need to be either a stones throw from the rocks or 5 miles offshore.
  13. I too have a lifetimes experience, having sailed for almost 60 years and have held a Yachtmaster Cert for most of that time. My point about the RYA thing is that many people get the impression that they can't sail without it, and many others think if they have one they know it all when in my opinion it,s only a starting point.
