Default VHF Radio and antenna mount???

I would like to hear some input before I start drilling holes....... any preferences on where to mount the radio itself:

I'm leaning toward the starboard side under the drivers dash. My other option is the port side on top or under the glovebox.

Also the antenna mounting location: I have a soft top and no tower so just wondering if it makes a difference port or starboard on the gunnel? I was planning on putting it on the starboard side but the directions say to put it at least three feet from the radio and if I put the radio under the driver dash it's only 2 feet. Maybe need to mount the antenna on the opposite side from the radio but not sure why the 3' rule is there.

I am putting this on a 20' Searunner with extended transom and softop. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
