Waterproofing the mast and wires for the electric motors

Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)

Hello everyone,

I'm curious what methods people use for installing and waterproofing the furler and outhaul motor cables into the mast. Our previous cables were secured and sealed into the mast with gobs of silicon/marine sealant. This certainly worked but didn't look great and made for a challenge when pulling them. Is there a better way? Maybe some type of clamshell or waterproof conduit would be better here? Does anyone have a photo of their set up?
