Default Cell phone antenna's for boats????

I read somewhere that a boat was equipped with a cell phone antenna which provided service up to 50 miles. Is this possible ;?

That really sepends on how high the receiving station is. I have one on my boat and it works well...I've gotten signal about 35 miles offshore.....50 is a stretch but if the receiving station is high enough it might work....I wouldn't count on it though....
