    he might be able to use a cell phone to access the internet but it costs heaps. Maybe a usb data stick would be good.

    Would a T-Stick from Telecom work?

    Though it's quite expensive, $30 for 500MB or something
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Satellite? You have to have the dish pointing in exactly the right spot. Boats move. That won't work.
    I'd say cellphone is probably the only choice really.

    there is a satellite dish for boats in which you lock on to the satellite and as you move the dish also moves to stay in connection with the satellite
