What stuff? PVC pipe?
Really hard to see that picture, plus I reckon any machine shop with a tubing bender and some sweet heat gun application could produce just about any size curve you wanted in some PVC pipe up to your gunwale.

Fused PVC Liquid tight

You could get some fused PVC liquid tight from any electrical supply house. That would allow you to connect the conduit directly to the starboard side of the console close to the floor. They also make plenty of connectors for securing the conduit along the way.

I started using that wire chase to neatin up all the wires INSIDE my cabin. Man does it clean up the jumbled pile of wires to eltronics etc. That's the stuff that has sticky back and face opens and closes with a snap.

ya just gonna try this stuff to get me through a season or two until my throttle or steering cable goes and I am forced to pull everything out of the wire chase and strart fresh. I REALLY regret not using a bigger pipe for this and my weep holes in my stringers.guess there is always next time when I do a boat over. not something that you can correct after the deck is down..this stuff has a little bit of an edge that I can throw a couple of screws through

Good Product

I used that product for many years to get power to a table-saw, instead of breaking up a concrete floor. Not a trip hazard and the casters for my rolling tool-box did not move it when I had to move the box
