I used to go Paragliding and had a mike & mini-speaker in my open faced helmet with a PTT on top of the helmet (where my hands were). My flying speed was 20mph+. Wind noise was never a problem but the mike was obviously protected from most of the wind.

At the begining I thouht that you own a small boat, so nowhere to hide.
But on a scorpion, I am almost sure that hiding yourself behind the windscreen so you will have not problem.
One good idea is to look for a better VHF

A piece of acoustic foam stuck over the microphone will work well. It doesn't need to cover anything but the mic element. Acoustic foam is commonly used as domesic loudspeaker covering. There are different grades, I use a medium cell size. There are folk on ebay who sell it and they also would send you a free sample. A bit naughty to make use of that but I'm sure someone would send you a sample sized piece for a nominal fee.

Stick the mic up Spongebob's backside. You won't have a problem then.

using the / a winshield as protection does make it better, but the problem is that you don't know yourself if the other guy has understood what you have said, until he tells you so. Unfortunately the other guy has -quite often- the same problem, wind noise in the mic. So this can go on for quite a while, untile naturally, you do stop and transmit clearly.
I will try with some acoustic foam and see what the result will be. Otherwise as been suggested here, i wil try the earphone method.

Thanks all.
