ACMO makes the Triatic with insulators, but you cannot use the Triatic for an SSB antenna. This was an Amel design of the Triatic to use it as a weather fax antenna.
It is NOT the right length for SSB frequencies, but more importantly, the SSB Antenna Turner must be mounted as close to the antenna as possible. This is the reason that when Amel installs an SSB the Tuner is in the Aft Lazarette, just below the whip antenna. It is possible to use a Mizzen Back Stay, but you should be aware of the potential electrical shock, positioning the bottom insulator higher than someone can touch it.
