    There are azimuth trackers available- http://www.follow-me-tv.com/ for instance- that can keep the dish pointed at the satellite regardless of the ship's heading. Simple trackers handle azimuth only, and you change the dish altitude manually as you go to different latitudes. For a LOT more money you can have a 2-axis tracker that will keep it pointed right with no manual help. Don't expect any of them to work well when the boat is rolling around a lot though.
    As a side note, don't bother with HTML on here, even when it works it just makes things hard to read on the board.
