If it was me, I'd get hold of a 6 or 7 ft long piece of 1.5in Stainless tubing, or even a composite tube such as an old windsurfer mast.

Hinge one end near the bottom of the transom (on the inside of the boat) and have a fastening the 'mast' clips into near the top of the transom. Even a bolt and big wingnut would do.

A ribraider type antenna could be mounted to the top of this 'mast'.

When not in use it could be folded into the boat, and raised when needed.
The dangerous(to You) antenna would be several feet above your head and behind you when you were sat at the jockey seat.

Nasher.

Not a bad idea mate although I don't think the stainless would weight any less that this poll. This one comes apart into 3 sections with screw in wiring connections. Original idea was to mount in either on the transom (it has a moulded clamp that fits spot on already) with all the nev lights removed or mounted just in front of the engine with the nav lights working.

The port starboard could be done away with as I already have them elsewhere. The white light though needs to be central (?) so could only stay on if central mounted in front of the console. Transom mounting is just adding more weight.
The poll is also thread in the top the exact size of a Ariel thread.
