The cable between antenna and tuner is part of your antenna. Use oxygen-free copper wire (its a boat on salt water...). In case of a long wire connection between the feed point of your antenna and the tuner consider to place the tuner at the feed point of your antenna and use a coax cable between RX/TX and tuner.

When you use only RX than forget every recommendation and just use any wire.
