If you left an ebay notebook on the boat you could just connect to it with gotomypc or one of its clones.
Good idea on gotomypc. I've use it myself to connect to other PCs. I don't have an extra laptop on the boat though.
Not sure what ultravnc is.
I've heard about somehting called "tunnelling over port 80". I wonder if we could use that to connect to webcams.
(Didn't go sailing this past weekend. Was too busy getting the webcam setup. I'll have to do a make-up this week I guess.)
