through deck coaxial cable-what wonderful suprises await me, my deck and my drill?

Catalina Capri 26: VHF radio addition

I got everything covered...except the antenna wire which still is wrapped up at the bottom of my mast.

is it possible to fish a coaxial cable from the mast to the electrical panel between the headliner and the deck? or do I have no option but to have *gulp* exposed wire tacked to my headliner?
anything structural blocking the path?

any suggestions on how to do this without it looking like some of the Frankenstein car stereos I rigged up when I was 16 would be greatly appreciated...

I found this site a while back while trying to figure out how
to wire the mast of my Capri 18.

This guy had a novel suggestion for routing wires and running them up inside the mast. (and a wealth of
other tips and ideas as well)

Plain old cheap yellow polypropelene rope!

The stuff opens up like the chinese finger gadget and
the wires go inside the rope. Loops at each end allow the
rope to be attached and tensioned with a bungee.

I haven't tried it yet because I've been sailing instead of
working. But I'll give it a try soon.

My VHF radio is supposed to arrive Friday....
