Option # 1
Pull out about a 250mm length of the antenna wire and tape it to the deck in a straight line forward from the antenna tube. Take the end up close to the bow. Tape the aerial to the deck securely with insulating tape in two or three places. Finally, seal the hole in the deck where the aerial exits with some silicone or blue tack. This works really well
Option # 2
Another solution is to dispose of the tube altogether, seal up the antenna deck mount hole, and start over as follows (see photos below) : –
Step 1 : Drill a 1/16″ in the aft side of the “conning tower” (see photo #2)
Step 2 : Feed wire out through hole (see photo #s 3 & 4).
Step 3 : Wrap wire around the outside of the conning tower without crossing the wire over itself (see photo # 5).
Step 4 : Either tape or silicon glue into place.
Step 5 : Seal hole where wire comes out (see photo # 6).
Step 6 : Make sure wire does not interfere with hatch installation.
