I heard some of the people like the 4' long Digital antenna. http://www.digitalantenna.com/ Take a look.

Stern would seem to get in the way of many activities (fishing, swimming, getting into the boat, etc)... I would recommend putting it just forward or on the outside of where you Bimini is... That way, it out of the way for most activities, and you have the flexibility of folding forward or aft.

Look at mine, it is out of the way. Located jut forward of the starboard outrigger. Get an 8' antenna. And don't be cheap, get the best out there, could mean life or death.
