That was my assessment when I ran the RG-8X with the mast up. We actually tried to feed some LMR-400 through after the fact and it was nearly impossible. I ran RG-8X all the way to the VHF to replace the super thin RG-58u that Amel put in originally. Getting the Rg-8x through the boat from the base of the mast to the VHF wasn't super easy either. Perhaps you can do it with LMR-400, but I wouldn't want to try and risk breaking things inside the little conduits inside the boat.
If I ever need to remove the mast, I will cut the rg-8x and add more splices and the connector. It's not difficult but no need to add those lossy connectors for now, IMO.
