Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] wiring conduits from lazarette to chart table

Thanks for your input.
Yes, there is a clear path between the battery compartment (the switch part of it) and the hidden part of the bookshelf above the hanging locker. There are actually 2 openings in the bulkhead; at the top and one at the bottom. They exit in stern storage compartment of the companionway, behind a removable panel. The top one is used to run cables to the ceiling of the companionway, through a conduit covered in ceiling-type lining. The bottom one is used to get to the battery compartment.
(The big white flexible pipe is for the ventilation of the battery compartment).
I can also easily get to the chart table cabinets from the bookshelf. I can give you more details.
But my problem is really about the PVC tubes that connect the lazarette and that bookshelf. I have 2 openings on the bookshelf end, but only one in the lazarrette. The tube that's empty is, sadly, the deadened one. The other one is already pretty busy with all the SSB cables.
I really believe Amel would have put the empty one for future use but I wonder how it is supposed to be used. Maybe something was missed on our boat ? I'm asking other 54 owners to check their setup, if possible.
I'm also talking to Amel about it but I was looking for real life input too.
