Sure. *bIQ'a'Daq Sepmey tlhIn tu'lu'. ***pIj *SepvamDaq nargh bIQ'a' 
tlhapraghmey 'e' luHar pa'logh nuv.*

I'd use *Daq* if the location is fairly small, like "in that harbor," 
and *Sep* if the region is fairly large, like "in the North Sea." I 
wouldn't use *SepHom* unless it was completely obvious what the *-Hom* 
was doing.

And yet we are told that showing an allegiance to military jargon 
increases one's social standing in everyday life /(Power Klingon)./ And 
we have the saying *QuvlIjDaq yIH tu'be'lu'jaj.* So I wouldn't discount 
using *Quv* for this. However, you should be prepared to answer the 
question, "What are the coordinates?", using coordinates.
