Switching those cables up would be embarrassing and potentially quite expensive. We ran messenger lines for everything and tied off port and starboard accordingly. The suggestion of unlaying one of the strands to attach the messenger worked great. Speaking of lines, as previously mentioned it is a good idea to tie off anything you can with a lanyard before working over the pedestal. While we were fitting the wiring up, I did drop the chain and the lanyard saved me a good bit of work.
