Default VHF on Center Console Installation

Need suggestions for avoiding problems.
Installing antenna on grab rail would max height and simplify access. Use will be on inland lakes and inshore.

my suggestion for avoiding problems - don't mount on the grab rail. What do most people do with a grab rail - grab on. I've seen a lot of antenna's mistakened for a grab rail.

Mine is mounted on the side of the console - the difference in height is to minor to make a difference in performance.
