While you don't say what the boat is, there are other ways to setup an antenna and ground plane for SSB. If the boat has a metal hull or large metal tanks down below, for fuel and water, you can often use those to create a large ground plane fairly quickly.
There are also antenna designs that do not require a ground plane.

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.
