Walking out on the docks improves signal the further out you go. She has heard from staff that AT&T is the best provider for the harbor (we are considering switching).
As far as wifi there, it also leaves a lot to be desired. However, she has brought up to the owner the fact that many boaters need to have a good connection, especially in a semi-remote location like Pleasant Harbor. She is hopeful that will improve shortly.
Outstanding, thank you so much for the ground intel.
Pleasant Harbor is currently my #1 choice for my ideal long term liveaboard harbor after reviewing many, I plan to be on the wait list ASAP though I'm still on the hunt for the boat, so obviously no picture or insurance yet.
I work remotely and having a steady constant cellular/internet connection is mandatory for me. On that note, I already have possession of my Starlink RV hardware, and I'm excited to figure out how I am going to rig it up for my boat. I've heard Starlink is quite reliable in the area now since the last few strings of satellite launches.
I'll transition one of my cell phones to AT&T for more reliable calls/texts so I'm all set when I'm up on the list.
I'll be in the Seattle area for a conference in the beginning of October and hope to swing by in person to check things out.
Thanks again for your input!
