Whilst I generally agree that a routing protocol will make life easier for you. You'll have to be carefull in implementing it in your situation due to your VSAT interfaces being ethernet. They will appear to be more attractive to routing protocols which take bandwidth into accound then your serial links. which won't meet your requirements of having the VSAT as a service of last resort.
I must say that I'm at a bit of a loss why your routers are taking so long to converge. To be honest I'm not really aware what timers and static routes have to do with each other. I've read the documentation, I just don't get it.
In my experience, All three routes should be visible in your "sho Ip route" with leased line first with lowest AD, the route will fall out of the route table as soon as the link is gone, and come back when the link is restored.
Are the alternate links on demand or are they permantly available?
