Sailor Fleet One Review?

Hello all, we've been mulling over installing an HF system before heading offshore again and are now contemplating an Inmarsat system instead.

We'd like to hear reviews from those that have installed the Cobham (or any brand) satellite system. We understand the HF has no user fees associated and that the sat systems will require monthly fees and user fees....

Thanks!

Pat and Michelle

Hi Brian, no other replies, save yours.

After researching HF, the Sailor Fleet one and other options, we've just purchased an Iridium Go system through PredictWind. Seems like the correct solution for what we are after (a Sat phone for when we need one and data when we want it).

Cheers,

Pat
