Tiger, I'm wondering why you need an extra 5mts on your boat !! I installed same on my previous boat (40' and C80 almost on transom) and missed the location for 2,5m only. Although splices are not recommended at all, I did it with very good result (well, I did try to purchase the 5mt extention, but none readily available, and I had to depart promptly). Even if you have a tall mast, I'd rather install the radome right where the 15m allows, wich I believe could be enough, think about it. Regarding thrudeck fitting, my actual boat use it for everything and is absolutely watertight (Westmarine sell them).
