A better solution is putting a PL259 on the cable in the mast and using an extended coupler to pass the connection through the deck rather than a cable clam. Far more leak proof and far more fool-proof IMHO. Also, the hole a cable clam requires is probably bigger than the one this requires.
Hope that helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
