The boat is about 70ft long and a flush deck motor cruiser so it is fairly big and the signal just may not travel well in this environment. I shall see when I set it up differently.
Also, if there metal between the wireless devices, the signal is weakened big time. Many wireless devices are still wireless N which doesn't have the greatest range to start with. My PC marginally connects to our Airport Extreme router at 50-60 feet but there is some concrete obstructions.
