Nice conduit for Wires?

All--

I'm running speaker wires along the inside of the boat, along the interior of the cockpit edge...along the bottom, side, and then to a hole previously occupied by a dead knot meter (rip).

Now, if I were a uber craftsman, with a MiterSaw, I might try this in wood, but the double compound angle is a killer.

What the best way to cover this speaker wire, while navigating 130° turns, without requiring me to spend a weekend?

Thanks.

geary - run it along edges, out of sight, then use screw down cable ties to hold it in place.

small diameter PVC pipe is relatively flexible and can probably make a 130˚ bend. Even if it doesn't you can always cut it with a good miter box and then glue it up again. It'd be waterproof, and relatively smooth and easy to work with.

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.

previous guy had like 5/8" clear flexi hose, but it looked like hell. What kind of glue? Epoxy? And does everyone just use WestSystems stuff, when one discusses epoxy?

thanks guys.

This stuff works well. May be secured with adhesive backed wire ties.

Do you need waterproof, is it visible or behind bulkheads and lockers?

No, this is just cosmetic. Visible (off white wall)
