Joel, the I28 I sailed on had the thru-hull installed forward in the forward cabin floor actually. The only problem was that the cable had not been properly protected and eventually failed. Since this will be a coax or other "don't walk on me" cable, plan ahead for that, with a cable protector or other way to make sure it isn't walked on for the short run over to the side and under the rest of the furniture. (Wasn't easy snaking it all the way aft, either, but there were no major impediments to that, port side for us.)
