Re: New Wire

If you are replacing wire... you tie a string to the old wire before pulling it out. (assuming it will pull out)

If its too late for that... then you can attempt a cotton ball tied to thread and using a vacuum cleaner to try to draw the string through.

But sometimes you just have to cut a hole. Wires run during manufacture often go in, then they sandwich parts together and might even glue the wires in place with spray-in insulation or the adhesives holding the boat together.

Re: New Wire

I'd like to know as well. The wires coming up out of the mast step are a bit ratty, and I'd like to at least reterminate them.

Are the wires secured? Can you pull new wires through?

Thanks, Jim

New Wire

Any ideas for running new wires thru top of cabin into the mast cradle of a 1972 P-30 ? Mast is down. Can't seem to find an access point from inside without cutting a hole in the ceiling under the mast.
