Shakespeare antenna installation

I am in process of installing a Shakespeare Galaxy 5225-XT antenna on a rail mount, attached to a stern railing on my Montauk. This antenna has the coax cable leading out horizontally from the chrome ferrule at the base in such a way that, when installed on the SS rail mount bracket, the cable hits the rail as I raise or lower the antenna. Solutions? Can I route the coax cable back out the bottom of the antenna without damaging the coax? Did I get the right antenna? Hoop, San Jose

The coax comes out the side, but doesn't
Also, try asking Shakespeare.

Thanks, Chuck, for your post. I talked today to Chris at Shakespeare. He said, "No problem. OK to pull coax out the bottom" of the antenna ferrule. Just soap up the coax and push the coax back through the rubber grommet and pull it out through the bottom. I'll do it! Hoop
