Re: Inside the mast wiring connection-help!
You might find it easier to run the wires through the mast step into the cabin, then connect them there. You can use a simple terminal strip that way for electrical connectors, and a coupling connector for RF connections.
I've had one boat with connectors inside the mast above the mast step and one with them below the mast step. The latter is a lot easier to deal with, the former required the mast to be lifted up slightly, connectors disassembled, then the mast lifted up the rest of the way.
