One of the 31′ poles will support a 31′ vertical with a matching network at the base and radials partially in the water, also configurable with a shorter radiator for 10/12, or with an added top wire as an inv-L for 80 m. Addition of a loading coil at the base will allow operation on 160 m.

The other 31′ pole will have a vertical element and tuned radials to be used on 40/30. The whip antenna is an adjustable-length vertical which will be used as a quarter-wave on the higher bands.
