Emailing people form out at sea is simply a single side band radio and a modem to interface with your computer. One of the earlier posts talks about sailmail as the solution. As I mentioned one of my sailing students has emailed me from all over the world using sailmail. As far as weather goes when you are going to make a crossing you can actually pay someone as a consultant to do your routing and weather. Many cruisers are actually doing this, especially on legs to New Zealand, when you have the potential to get really spanked if you choose the wrong window of weather. Weather faxes are nice out at sea and have been around a long time, it all comes down to your single side band radio. choose a good one.
