I don't smoke cigars Bill but I do have decades of experience in working with virtually all types of antennas, both ashore and on boats from 26 ft to 409 ft so I'd appreciate a little less of a condescending response.

I have no problem with folks who have strong opinions but when they voice them in such declarative ways so as to dismiss the experience and expertise of others, it doesn't foster constructive debate.

My expereince is that here is no such thing as one single best antenna for a boat and if there is, it has yet to be invented. There are far too many parasitically influenced metallic objects in the field of a dipole on a boat to not cause significant pattern degredation far worse than other type antennas.
