Weboost Drive signal upgrade recommendations

I picked up a Weboost Drive as i got a super cheap deal
However i feel the antenna is letting me down.
Any recomendations for upgrading its range/power?

I assume the transmitter that comes with it is good enough for being on a boat (distance wise), as such i imagine the best improvement would come from its ability to pickup remote signals?
Ideally i would like a omni antenna (so i dont have to climb the mast to direct it), but would love to hear if i am barking up the wrong tree, and what antennas have improved your signal range/performance of the Weboost !

Thanks

Flat panel. But these are very directional. Good in harbour but bad at anchor.

for the outside, this is the shakespear one

for inside something like this.
not sure if you need the 50ohm or 75ohm. you'd have to know what the drive is

you have to keep them seperated. point the insdide one away from the outside one.
