You're assuming they're using metal through-hulls, which isn't always the case anymore.
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.

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.
