Are the foam
bits attached to a cord? I assumed they would be attached to VHF cable.

In my case, there is no way to attach a new cable to the old cable at
the top of the mast. At least not that is apparent to
me. The original RG58 Cable seems to be "hardwired" to the
Banten AIS antenna at the top of the mizzen mast. It may be different on
I can, however, attach a new cable at the base of the mast and pull a new cable
up the mast to the top of the mast.
Fortunately, I have the luxury of having my mast horizontal and 4' off the
ground while in the mainland USA in the land of Amazon, West Marine, Defender,
etc. to figure out what I will do next. I am planning to replace both the
VHF and AIS with antennas that have a PL259 connection at the base of the
antenna and run LMR-400 cables to the VHF and AIS. I will let you know how that
