I'm a big fan of trying the easiest solution first, and if that doesn't work, go to the next more difficult solution. I ran 4" copper foil to a thru hull that I cleaned up with a fine wire brush when I set up my SSB ground. Took me about 30 minutes and it worked great. Nice thing about the foil is I could slide it under floorboards without having to pull up the floor. Ran one strip of foil from the tuner and one strip from the transceiver, both to the same thru hull. My tuner tunes fast, the signal reports are great and works great for e-mail.
