Marina Internet - Major Fail

I have noticed in my travels that marinas, no matter how upscale, can't get Internet right. Here at the Marina Cascais there is a very powerful Internet network. It is secure and available only to the marina staff. On the other hand there is a totally useless "free" internet that does not work on any of the docks and is broken about 50% of the time.

As I walked around the restaurant block at the marina tonight I figured it out. The restaurant owners pay the marina to keep their Internet crappy. Virtually every restaurant with Internet was populated with at least 75% of the patrons on the Internet.

So that's my story and I am sticking with it!

  1. Hi Roger. You're probably on tne money with that assessment - same applies here in Lagos.

    Didn't make it out to Cascais, though we did get to Sintra. Back on the boat in Marina de Lagos awaiting the sails and the electonics fit. Maybe here for up to two weeks more then Gibraltar and over to Morocco.
