comment Training plan for a sailor at sea
Resistance bands come in various resistance levels and are great for traveling. Suspension bands (like TRX) are also portable, but I'm not sure about how that will work with the waves you describe. This q/a has good ideas for cardio when traveling. Also this q/a has several good suggestions including FitDeck that was developed by a Navy Seal.

comment What are water fats and complex fats and how to get rid of them?
nice answer. As far as abdominal fat (aka omentum, visceral fat, or belly fat) and subcutaneous fat being the same, this article may give a better distinction between the two, and why omentum fat is more harmful to your health than subcutaneous fat. (The article also makes mention of a third type of fat in the bloodstream - triglycerides.) Although you can't isolate the omentum from subcutaneous fat, tracking your waist measurement will show if your fat loss is on the right track.

The abdominal exercises in this answer should be easy on the back. You can add weights with the dying bug and bird dog exercises and you back should still be ok.

comment How do I know if I am using my resistance cord in the right way?
You could try folding the band in half and mark midline with a piece of tape. Then you can step equally on either side of the tape. I've never had a problem keeping it even, so that is my best suggestion.

Have you tried using a foam roller? See this q/a for info on releasing the hamstrings. Touching your toes also requires back flexibility.
