I'm in the process of adding an external Cable TV (RG6 / F-Connector) jack to my Catalina 36
. The marinas
I frequent around the Pacific Northwest
(including the one where I live) tend to have free or cheap
cable TV dockside, plus at my home dock
I plan on getting a cable modem
on-board for real Internet
I've identified a jack to use on the exterior of the boat (Furrion Telephone / TV Inlet Square
, because it is cheap) and I have a decent amount of experience running cable in indoor/outdoor settings for the crimping, etc.
What I don't understand (really at all) is how to properly ground this connection in a marine environment
, or even if I have to. My boat has a galvanic isolator
, if that makes a difference.
