Mast Wire Race Access

I┤m in the process of rewiring my mast and wondering how to improve access to the race. Right now, the VHF, running/steaming/spreader lights, radar cables, etc. all go through a separate hole in the fron of the mast just below deck level. If I turned this into one larger hole tofacilitate wiring and to reduce chafe caused by the 90 deg. bends would I compromise the integrity of the mast?

All these wires enter just below deck level where it acts as a pivot point. it is a Hood mast and about 1/4Ęthick there. I will try to get some photos of thhe area for better explanation. Till then any advice is welcome. T
