You can mount both antennas on the same mast, or separately... the choice depends on the layout of your roof and related surroundings. If you have an existing satellite dish mount, you may find it up to the task of holding the DB4e. It would be ill-advised to place the larger Y10713 on a J-pole type dish mount though. You would not want to have a wind storm pull fasteners out of your roof deck. To mount on the same mast will require more than a 5' mast section, you want to have at least 3' to 4' of separation between antennas.

When correctly installed, the combination of a tripod and mast makes a very durable mounting system.

Eve brackets are also available for attaching to a gable end.

Chimney mounting kits are generally a set of straps and mast clamps that work with a variety of chimney types ans sizes.

I have used 1 3/8" diameter chain link top rail as mast on several installations since the traditional 10' antenna mast has become hard to find in stock. The big box home center stocks the chain-link fence components.

Take a look at this comprehensive selection of mounting hardware and accessories:
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
