First, if you can, add a wiring conduit inside the mast using some PVC pipe. You can add it in two sections if having an opening for the spreader lights is a necessity. Pop riveting the conduit to the mast isn't too difficult a task and makes changing/replacing wiring much simpler than does the foam or wire-tie solutions.
As for wiring, I would recommend buying wire from either Berkshire or Pacer
, as they have a better product for less money than does Ancor IMHO. Pacer sells direct to the public and their outlet/remainders section has excellent pricing. Genuinedealz.com also has pretty good pricing on marine grade wire.
For the running rigging, you might want to contact Cajun Rigging. They have pre-priced packages for a lot of different boats.

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.
