The reason for conduit is primarily to make running future wires and doing maintenance simpler. It also allows one to install insulation above the overhead in a boat.

I also use them to mount conduit, but if there is no room for conduit, I just mount the wires directly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
