I've been looking at a way to turn shrouds into an inverted Vee. If I do it, I'll do a write up and show how it's done.
Won't be till well into the summer months, when I have time to work it out and look at what sort of rigging I need to change out.
(Of course, I have a fiberglass boat so it will be easier than some people's boats will be)
Just for general knowledge an inverted vee is a balanced antenna, there's no need for special grounding and weird plates, grounds and strange ideas. Cut the wires to length, insulate the ends, connect your feed line to your tuner and go from there. You don't really have to bother with working out lengths even, because your tuner will "take care" of that problem for you.
But - enough for now...
