Need to boost wifi reception in Marina

We enjoy Wifi with our iPads while in Marina but have found that since moving to slip further from the office that we cannot get any signal. Our iPads are wireless so I am looking for a good product/antenna to receive the signal then re-transmit via wireless without having to add a Ethernet hub to re-broadcast for our devices. Anybody have any suggestions?

Hi Jerry,

Have to leave in just a minute or I would do it for you, but if you use the forum search function you will find at least 4-5 recent discussions and recommendations on wifi antennas. Some of the discussions go for 10-12 pages as I recall. Just use "wifi" as the search term and you will find a couple of days worth of reading including specific brand recommendations and even some very technical details.
