Sorry SimonV, but it looks that way. I ran a 4-inch copper foil from the transceiver to a thru-hull, and a second foil from the tuner to the same thru-hull, and I get good signal reports. Running the two strips of foil for the ground took me all of about 30 minutes. That's why I tell people to try this first before punching a hole in the hull for a dynaplate or running foil all over the bowels of the ship.
