siting inverter and HF tuner on PSC 34

Hi there, looking for any ideas on where to site either of these things. I was leaning towards installing the inverter under the chart table, but after chasing it through, it's 12'+ cable run.

What about HF tuner? Aft port locker?

Thanks!

Chase

Prior to my owning her, Irish Eyes had an antenna tuner mounted on the vertical surface at the foot of the quarter berth. The spot is near the insulated backstay. The copper grounding foil is also nearby above the ceiling. The extension foil still hangs down from behind the ceiling along with the antenna coax coming from the nav desk where the transceiver was located.

We use the 12v plug-in inverters when we need a little 125v. There are two 12v outlets at the nav desk and one each in the galley, in the head, and on the starboard bulkhead above the settee.

On our 37, the inverter was under the chart table. It was a short distance to the batteries. On our current 34, the chart table is not on the same side as the batteries, so longer runs .... drats.

When we bought Bluesharp, the HF tuner was located as far back in the port locker as it could be. It is under a shelf that was installed by the factory to hold the Alder Barber unit.

The HF tuner on Indigo is mounted on the aft bulkhead in the quarter berth (down by the foot of the berth). We haven't had any problems with it mounted there.

If you take off the ceiling panel over the quarter berth, there is a ton of room behind it. This would be an ideal place to mount hardware since it is hidden, close to the panel, and easy to access.
