How well would a 4 or 5 ft. antenna work compared to a 8 ft. That's longer than I want to put on my boat.

if you have more than 4-5 ' swells it wont very well when you go down in the troth your signal is slaming into the waves, we have an 8' antenna on our boat and some times at Neah bay its not tall enough but on the columbia a 4-5 would work fine but i would not buy the cheapest one you find you get what you pay for Just My $0.02 Quick Fisher

I understand that many are not satisfied with the shorter ones and end up trading up to the 8 footer. I think the shorter ones are meant to be mounted on a high vessel or a mast.
