Or buy one of these and stick your SIM in it when you are on the boat. Or just fit a Pay as you Go si into it and leave it in your lifejacket.

For that sort of money, you might as well have a VHF. Waterproof models start arund 59 now (eg NX1000 2W model).

I wonder if it's splashproof or properly waterproof. I'm dubious about its abilities to stand up to a salt water dunking!
