You have several choices.

1) B60..Single element 600 watts.
Flush mount, tilted element.
Good general purpose unit..economical...$200. range.

2) B164 ...3 element 1 kw and 6 times more sensitive at 50 Khz than the B60.
Flush mount tilted element...mid $600. range

3) SS264 single 25 degree 200 kHz 1 kw.
Flush mounted tilted element...excellent coverage at 200 kHz .
High $800 range.

4) B271W.. single 25 degree element 1kw.
Fairing mount.
Same element as the SS264 25 degree except in a fairing.

Other units to consider for maximum capability would be the B260 and SS264 pair.
