Cool...thanks for the suggestion! As I have twin backstays, I can actually run such an antenna straight up to the masthead using a spare main halyard. I can put an AT-140 directly under the deck and use those stand-offs for the three feet to the base of the antenna. It's a steel boat, so the whole thing's an excellent "dynaplate".

The SS lifeline: I already have a spool of that.
