Through the Deck
Can anyone suggest a specific device to waterproof the wiring harness as it goes through the deck from the mast into the cabin? I don't really like the option of drilling a big hole and then trying to keep the water out with of some kind of pliable sealer. It seems to me that this would be a leak waiting to happen.
I will need a pass-thru approximately 3/4" in diameter. So far I have found the Blue Sea Cable Clam, but that seems to be designed for a single wire, as in VHF. Has anyone successfully used one for a multi-wire harness?
Also would be interested in a source for a waterproof wire connector that will work without external splices, as in an automotive trailer connector. I've found many on the web, all available in quantities of 100 or more. My boat is not that big ;-)
Sorry if this is redundant. I Google searched SailNet and found nothing. Thanks in advance for sharing your collective wisdom and experience. - r
