I would suggest you solder the coax to the PL-259 plug. Also - look up your local HAM Radio club - there are lots of old HAMs who love to help. They will even help to "tune" the antenna for you.

There are a number of ways to go through the deck. A great way to seal the connections to the elements is with a thing called Coax Seal.

I hope this helps a bit.
