I use a split lead antenna. It has the advantages of being able to roll it up and stow it when the boat is in storage and also eliminates the need to splice so many failure points into your backstay such as in a standard insulated stay antenna. GAM / McKim Split Lead Antenna | GAM Electronics
For portability, this might be a good option.
