Running wires through the boat
Hi Guys.
I am about to install some new electronics on my RL28 and this will involve running some wires from the control panel inside to the rear of the boat.
I noticed the smal pipe containing other electrics running back from behind the control panel but I can not see where it comes out at the stern of the boat.
Is it easy enough just to run the wires through this pipe or is there a special trick involved? Where does it actually come out?
ALSO is there a similar pipe that runs to the front of the boat or around the kitchen area?

Thanks for your help.

Garry

Garry. The conduit that you describe that runs from the switch board aft should exit on the top port side corner of the outboard well, it was installed to handle the wiring for a stern light or any wiring needed for an motor.
It is best to use a length of stiff wire pushed thru from the aft end to tape the new wiring to, and pull thru.

Thanks Rob.
As mine is a diesel I would imagine the conjuit would exit in the engine bay near the 50L fuel tank??
I will have a good look around there and see what I can find.

Thanks for the information and congratulations on having the foresight to have the conjuit glassed into the boat for possible futre changes or additions.

Is there a similar one going to the front of the boat?

Best regards

Garry. There should be another conduit running forward to the pulpit
See the wiring diagram in the RL28 drawings section.
