Receiver Antenna Position

I am switching all my boats to Fly Sky 2.4 systems. Does the position of the antenna matter? Vertical...horizontal?

It all depends on the pond your boating in, keep it near the deck above water line.

If your transmitter antenna is vertical, then your receiver antenna should be vertical for best signal transfer.

Rule of thumb, vertical and as high as possible, just like any other radio. While a horizontal aerial might show some signs of polarization (reduced signal, depending on which way the boat is facing), as long as there is nothing to absorb the signal between your transmitter and the RX aerial, there should be no problems.
