Inclinometer accuracy as function of positioning

I have to measure different layers and compare them if they are all parallel to each other. These layers are inside a ship (in a harbor) and the whole system is in tilt and roll motion. I will compare all values form the sensors (ADIS16209) at the same time but the problem is the correct positioning on the layer.  I like to know the influences of false sensor placing on the surface: How to place the inclinometers or evaluation boards parallel to the layer-surface and how to assure the best accuracy quality? Is there a model/program available which allows to simulate/calculate the accuracy quality as a function of positioning error, temperature change,...


Thanks in advance,
