Re: Use of conduit to tidy up cables
I boils down to the need for physical protection; if the locker could have traffic or storage, something must be done, if not, it only makes troubleshooting take longer. Last longer? If there are enough straps, the wire will last as long as the boat unless physically damaged. Comparing the vibration on a car with a boat is apples to hand grenades. The other reasons wire is loomed on a car is manufacture and maintenance; manufacture goes faster and mechanics are kept out of the bundles. They can also consult the manual and know what is in the bundle and where things go. Totally different.
That said, I've loomed wires a few places, where they are outside dedicated panels or voids. Sometimes a physical cover or guard is an even better idea, if stuff can shift of a person fall.
