Hope this is the right place to post
I am curious to hear about people's experience using WeatherNet from OCENS vs. a free service
to receive weather
info/files (such as GRIB files) like SailDocs.
I like OCENS and have had dealings with them before. I find them knowledgeable and helpful and certainly understand what cruisers need.
I also know that SailDocs was developed by and for cruisers and is a bit more cumbersome to use, but highly flexible.
We will be doing a Pacific crossing and will be downloading files and info using an Iridium
WeatherNet has an upfront cost of a hundred bucks plus a cost per file requested (not counting the data charge).
I'd love to hear anyone's experience with WeatherNet especially compared to SailDocs and especially if used on a long crossing.
