Hi-Gain WIFI Repeater ... Redirection

There are some nice WIFI repeaters and boosters on the market.

I want one and I plan to extend it to the top of the mast. I hope to be able to sent it up on/with my main sheet since the mainsail sets about 1-1/2' below the masthead. Where I'm at, I need it as high as possible(tall metal building between me at the library(1200 feet away ... or a coffee shop 800 feet away).

I don't want a downfeed to my computer(USB or CAT), since I want options to be in he foreberth or in the cockpit), but these places will be in the dead spot of the boosted signal.

So I need to find a way to actually redirect the signal right at the repeater/booster.

I've searched for the scenerio in many different ways(word mixes), and I can't seem to find this specific scenerio.

Any ideas ... has anyone already resolved this issue?

You don’t want a booster...

At the top of the mast you want a long range outdoor access point - something like a ubiquity bullet, cat 5 cable to the cabin where it is connected to the wan port of a wifi router.
