Masthead is pretty much the way to go if you can......
But it does also depends on where you are sailing. If you're on a lake and you are never going to be out of sight of nearest rescue service, you have plenty of Cell phone reception etc then maybe not such a big deal.
If you are however going offshore like me without the benefit of HF, then well I personally want every wee little bit of range I can get.....
Masthead means significantly increased range, increased range means the people you want to hear you can when you most need it.....
So my two cents, put simply is:
If it is an inshore boat, go masthead as long as it is no big hassle, if its a hassle I wouldn't worry too much about it.
If going offshore then for me masthead is compulsory.
