We have an aluminum sailing yacht,

If we place the RUTX11 internal we have no Wifi on the deck and can not connect to the habor wifi.

I we place the RUTX 11 outside in the mast we don't have wifi inside the boat.

For the 4G there are 2 external antenna in the mast

The  RUTX has wifi 2 antenna inputs is it possible to have a external antenna in the mast for 2.4G Wifi and have one antenna  for the 2.4G in the boat so we can use wifi in and outside the boat?

Hi,

Yes, in theory that should extend the range of your WiFi signal. If you will be still unhappy with performance of your WiFi you can always try using WiFi signal repeaters to extend your range that way.

This I try to prevent, because of the power requirement during sailing everything runs on 24V battery system and a repeater consume to much power. but to confirm you answer in theory if one antenna is outdoor and one antenna is indoor this will work and solve the wifi receiving issue?

Yes, it should extend the range. Please note that the longer the cable is - worse the signal performance will be. Make sure to use as less length as possible.
