I wouldn't do it.

Do you know how much voltage goes through that deal? Keep it very near the engine.

 I agree with Glen in this. Mine has been pretty wet and never failed. I'm knocking on wood now. Lol

The put out in excess of 500 volts. That could get ugly fast,  not to mention the interference it could generate.

They can get pretty wet.

How about under the aft deck?

With all do respect and understanding of your concern,  they aren't that delicate.

We sank the raceboat twice on the same box. Lol

Not sure if you are running a back seat or not, but I mounted mine on the back of the back seat. Should do the trick 👌🏽

Mine is mounted off the stringer. My back seat goes right over it. So it's under the rear seat and I don't think it's ever been wet. Just an idea. Maybe some other can post a pic where they mounted they're as well and you'll figure out a great spot.  :-)
