Ah. OK, that's a different problem. Sorry that I misinterpreted your need.

I suspect that a capable Ham would be able to find the modulation audio in your radio and extract it and the receiver audio, but that would not be trivial.

Another approach might be to use a separate receiver on the same channel, but then you might encounter RF overload and not get clean audio of the transmission.

I think you need to find a technically gifted friend.

Edit: In the US it is not legal, unless you are a licensed facility like a marina, to transmit on a VHF channel from land. Otherwise, your idea is fine if you intend to do it on your boat.
