Oh wire, where art thou?

Neither I nor the marine electrician working on my boat can figure out how to access the mast and spreader light wiring in my Morgan IO 28, a 1976 edition.

The mast is stepped on the deck, and though we''ve poked and peered into every nook and cranny, there''s no obvious access location.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone who KNOWS where the access is located.

While I don''t KNOW for certain, many boats of this era ran thier wiring through the headliner and up through the deck straight into the base of the mast. The wires were butt connected during commissioning and were cut when the mast was pulled. The only way to access wires on that set up is to remove the mast.
