How about IP addresses on mobile locations...?

Hi all!

I'm working on a project that will include 10 mobile locations (ferries) that will have public IP addresses. What location should be assigned to those...?

Home port? Some point in the middle of the ferry route? ;-)

GPS the data real time ;)

At first thought I would say the home port. Finding a centroid in the middle of the route seems a little extreme. Either that or you could search to see if the body of water is in the location database. I think I'd still use home port though.
