Re: Anybody know of coaxial thru-deck connector?

I've had no problem with the round plastic variant (Blue Seas), otherwise similar to the Scanstrut. The instructions say to use a sharp drill bit while drilling the plug, maybe "very sharp" or "extremely sharp" would be better, but even though my holes were not quite perfect, each one sealed very nicely. I might have gone with the rectangular Scanstrut had I had more room and fewer legacy holes.


My only wish for them would be to be able to buy the rubber plugs alone, so as to easily block the holes when the cables are pulled for a period of time.
