state of satellite communications?

Not absolutely certain, but I suspect there may be a few reasons why you have not received a reply. 1.) Stock trading and sailing may seem to some to be mutually exclusive. Being in the middle of the ocean and trading stock real time should only be done if you have someone else at the helm. 2.) Unless you step up to the very expensive satellite service, most services are really only meant for occassional email, internet, and weather services. The affordable services are tyically around 9600bps although some are now offering ISDN type speeds but they would be expensive if you were connected all day.
