Joe wants to put his DirecTV on his boat. DirecTV says they can do it, but he doesn't believe them. Leo thinks that if he's in the harbor and there isn't a lot of movement, then it could be possible. But since boats move up and down according to the tides, Joe will likely lose that satellite connection often. It's not a good idea, especially for internet access.
A better option would be to go with cellular data, and since Joe has Verizon through his iPad, that may be the best option. His iPad would make a great hotspot. Or he could use a MiFi, which is faster. Verizon has a product called Home Fusion which may be a better option since it may be priced more affordably.
