The antenna wire goes through an opening in the cap rail. The tuner should be as close to the antenna as possible because the wire from the top of the tuner to the antenna is in fact part of the antenna. Not a big deal except that as with everything else about this boat, the hull deck joint is thick, real thick. You can not drill from the inside because the hull/deck joint is up in a small gunnel area. Plus the space is full of bolts that hold the hull/deck joint together. Therefore, one must determent where to drill from above the cap rail. Did I mention the screw holding on the cap rail. You have heard of measure twice, cut once, this was measure 4-5 times, mash teeth and drill once. Success.
