Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow nav light re-wiring

Hi Thomas,

I had this issue a few years ago.  The wires had corroded (green) all the way back to the junction box in the port locker so I replaced everything from that point.  I don't remember the exact details but it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.  I definitely did not have to remove the pulpit.  As Paul & Sue mentioned just attache a chase to the old wire before you pull/push it out.  The wire goes up to the top rail and around the bow.  I think I used some sort of lube on the wire but it went pretty well.

Best of luck,

We had a similar re-wiring problem. We simply tied a leader line to the electrical wire and gently pulled it through the opening.  Once through we  re-threaded the new wire back up the stanchion.

In investigating my starboard nav light failure I've encountered deteriorating wiring. I suspect I will have to remove the pulpit to thread the new wire, but was hoping someone had a miraculous and novel technique for leaving it in place.
