What have you used to conceal wire on the under side surface of a hard top which is exposed to the weather? thanks

Will,

Send Todd (Madchark) a pm asking for a picture and name of the product he used.
He used a rectangular white channel snap together for running his wire bundle front to back on the underside of hardtop. You can see the end of the channel in the picture.
Up front he ran the wire bundle down a SS pole and under the helm dash.

The pole is a wire chase and a handle to hang on to . Neat idea.

FWIW

you can also use the smaller pickets for tracks in between the windows..just rip then in half...i think they are 1 1/2 inch square......the big end post is 5 or 6 inches wide....now thats easy

Thanks Tuna,when my dad and i built the boat i wanted and liked the center helm.....but if i were to do it over i would put the helm on the starboard side with a side door like i had on my Wayne Beal.....i feel you lose to much space down forward with the port side companion way..center is much better...maybe if i get some energy over the winter i will get the sawzall out..lol

completly agree with MDI. we are going with a center companionway on our build so that we can use the space down forward better.
