Question New member

My son and I just bought an O'Day Outlaw, 26'. We are in the process of reconditioning her. I know how to rewire the electrical. What I'd like to know is if I can run an antenna cable down the inside of the mast. Or should I just mount an antenna on the hull somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Mount it on the mast! A messenger line with a lead weight can help you pll the coax through.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Oday outlaw


I just bought a '65 Oday outlaw in may. Once I get her repowered with an outboard that has an altenator on it, I am going to be worrying about electronics. First up is the radio. Did you find an internal cable channel in the mast to run your cable through?

A short chunk of bike chain works better then a lead weight
