I've considered a seperate wire to the masthead but that's adding more windage and doesn't seem as reliable. A whip is possible, but has some of the same issues. I've read about the antenna that mounts next to the backstay, but no one who has used one. All HAM's I've spoken to don't believe they will work. The tubing I'm thinking of would be 1" or more in diameter. That should have enough space to allow air between the wire and tube.
