Rewiring mast on Newport 30
So next on my list is pulling new wires up the mast. Tying to the existing wires and pulling the new in behind the old will not work because the wires are broken at what appears to be a baffle of some sort at about the spreaders. What is that baffle for and how in the world do I get wires through it. I can't tell what it is made of. I need to totally rewire the mast. Masthead lights, spreader lights, and a messenger or two for later. I am considering installing folding mast steps and thought that maybe I could use those fasteners to install a conduit up the inside or the mast as well. any thoughts on that?
