    Looking for advice/links to videos on installing a radio on my Sundeck. I purchased this from an owner who only used it on inland lakes so he had no need for one. I am using it on Lake Erie and I have the radio (was given to me) and I still need to purchase antenna. I would imagine I just pick a spot on or near the dash somewhere and cut a hole, but what do I need to power the radio? Are there places near the fuse box to just plug it in? Do I have to do some wiring back to the batteries? Obviously I don't know much about this...first boat :)

    Open the storage door in front of the helm. Get your head in there and look up behind the radio. The fuse box is there, and it should have an extra slot or 2 to tap into for radio power.

    Awesome, thanks! Then I take it I just put the antenna wherever and just run the cable for it as well? Probably somewhere on the same side of the boat I would imagine?

    Ive seen quite a few mount the antenna right below the starboard side windshield, outside of the boat, maybe a little forward of the shifter and aft of the helm storage window.
