Smile Satellite Radio on Pearson 27'

We're wanting to install SIRIUS/XM on a Pearson 27'. My question is - "Where do I place the antennae that it's not having a blocked signal due to the rigging?" "Are there antennae's that mount on the stern?" The only one I've seen mounts on the deck and I don't want to drill a hole in the fiberglass. Anyone out there with a resolution?

On my Pearson 30 I have found that I can get a signal for my Sirius boom box through the deck. I will be experimenting with mounting an antenna under the deck this summer. If that does not prove to be reliable, I will look at getting a GPS/Sirius antenna for the mast head.
