I polished mine with Meguiars Mirror Glaze Plastic Polish.  If you do it by hand, you'll rub alot, but it does a pretty good job.  It's eaisier if you take the lens off & work on a flat surface.  At West Marine-I think it was about $12.

Or... you could save $150 by installing a barrel connector inside the port coaming space. Run the coax thru the cabinet in the head. Mine has worked great for years.

Thanks to all who responded.  I pulled the mast and discovered that yes, the VHF coax was not in the conduit (it even had a female to female connector between two short pieces) and the conduit was broken in half at the bottom set of rivets.  The broken section slid down the wires to almost the mast step where it's been happily "clanging" for four years.   I plan to install new coax in the conduit and drill for new rivets just above the braking point and encase the exposed wiring below the brake with foam pipe insulation.  The first night on the boat, with the mast removed, was so quite I almost couldn't sleep!

Thanks to all who contribute to this forum- it is a wealth of information & new ideas.  After too many years of having the wires and conduit keep me awake by slapping around in the mast, I've decided to pull the mast this weekend and replace the broken conduit.  I think the factory used thin wall PVC for the conduit and it apparently broke in several places (guessing at the rivets) when the boat was moved.  I'm considering using larger, sch 40 (tougher), PVC attached to the mast through the original mast holes with alum. rivets.  Does anyone have any suggestions or tips they could pass along who might have tackled this opportunity before?
