The KISS-SSB is a US Patented marine SSB ground plane system. This Icom endorsed principle is the one and only complete counterpoise system. It does not require any holes under the water-line in the hull for a bronze plate, copper foil or copper mesh. The system has many feet of exact length wire radials built in it.

After a normal installation time of less than thirty minutes the KISS-SSB is completely maintenance free. Unlike the bronze plate that requires constant cleaning, and the copper foil that is subject to constant corroding.

A paragraph taken directly from the article:
I have seen exactly one product for the marine market that does the same thing ham operators have been doing for nearly a century and I haven’t a clue why it’s not on every single SSB-equipped boat. The KISS-SSB is a collection of radials designed specifically for marine frequencies. It’s dead simple to install—it looks like a short garden hose that you connect to your antenna tuner and then unwind anywhere you like. That’s all there is to it. Reports are extremely favorable.
