Question Columbia 22 re-wire

I recently purchased a 1970 Columbia 22 and will need to re-wire the boat. I attempted to pull the old wires from the cabin light and it would not move at all. The wiring runs into the overhead, it does not have an exposed run. I read somewhere that the wiring was glassed in (I believe was the term used) when the boat was made and cannot be pulled. Before I start really yanking on the old wire I wanted to get some advice before I do any real damage. Should I dead end what I have and or is it possible to use the existing runs. I will also accept “put the tools down, slowly back away, and call a pro!”

James

Re: Columbia 22 re-wire

the wiring in my boat is behind the panels that are removable in the interior where the deck and hull come together there are wood blocks that are epoxied in to be able to screw the panels in, the wiring is brad nailed in the wood blocks. I would like to rewire my boat with better wire and more accessory ports. I am not sure how the C22 is done, I have been in a few c22's and you could always run wiring wherever you want, it doesn't have to be in the same run as the factory.

socal c25,
I wish I was that lucky. My wiring just sort of disappears into the boat.

Re: Columbia 22 re-wire

Have you used a multimeter to see if the existing runs are okay? If they are, and there is sufficient length left for re-terminating each end, why not use what is already there? If you are on a budget, this will save time and money, and you will only have to add runs for any additional circuits you are planning.
