Hi guys, can anyone help advise me how to install a) a shore point on board and b) a set up to have both internet and boosted phone signal (I get nothing at my mooring)?

Has anyone done this themselves (John-Annville ??)?

Hi Dave do you meen internet connection usually by mariner wifi or power connection for 240 volts.you will need to have a shore power sauce to connect to?,there are regulations in force for certain below ground cable runs.but i have found 2'5 artic cable run inside a 3/4 =28mm plastic water pipe buried in a trench below and away from rond anchor spots with a post at boat side with a water tight box for connection works very well.I would need more details to be able to help, perhaps a pm with phone no.John

Shore power, talk to Boulter they are good at this and give good advice. Internet though.... I have a dongle on a powered USB cable ( bought from Maplins and is 5m long) it's up the top of my stubby wooden stick on top of wheelhouse sharing the box that houses the IAS ( ship identification so I know the name of the supertanker that runs me down while bobbin in the oggin) I bought the dongle online (e-bay) and it has twin ariel ports in it so I have two different type of antenna up there and as the dongle is powered by the USB connection it gets boosted. Have tried a battery powered wi fi Hub from maplin and from 3 Mobile but found the dongle gets a better signal in most places on the broads. The dongle is unlocked so will take any SIM card. Also tried multiple dongles going to a hub on all different cards so I wouldn't have to keep swapping sims over but that didn't work as the computer got confused as to which dongle it was " seeing" gone back
To one dongle and although vodaphone has more coverage I have found topping up to problematical ( pay as you go get a voucher from a shop) 3 mobile is just as good in some places but much easier to top up!

Good places for net on 3 mobile are- St Bennets, Fleet Dyke, Salhouse island either end, Wroxham island sometimes, Wroxham
As near to the station as you can get, Stalham, Yarmouth, Norwich and all its environs, beccles. St olaves if the tide is in other wise terrible!

That works for me anyway.

Shore power- good cable to RCD to ring main... Sorted!
