Cellular modem and antenna recommendations

I'm just starting my boating life, and one thing I'm definitely bringing with me is my local network. Rather than going with one of the marine-specific cell services, I plan to use my Verizon access to connect my LAN to the net (WAN). Apart from the fact that I'm a software engineer by trade, I enjoy my wireless connectivity for recreation as well. :_)

It looks like a cellular modem (to provide an Ethernet connection for my router) plus a good antenna will work for me. I've seen some offerings from Sierra and Cradlepoint which look promising, and antennas galore offering 6-9 dB signal strength.

Can anyone describe a setup which is working for them, with specifics on your equipment?

Thanks-

Bob
