I second the opinion of having both a fixed-mount VHF, and a handheld. That's worked pretty well for me over the years.
This is very true...which is why I said you need to have a switch, to select which VHF is connected to the antenna.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
