I am rewiring my '79 Montauk and need to protect the wires as they go through the tunnel under the deck. My thought is to use fuel line as conduit and seal the ends with electrical tape. Is there a better way?

The factory uses a sort of cylindrical black
mesh about 2" in diameter. I contains the
fuel line, oil line, steering, battery cable,
bilge pump wiring, anchor light wiring, and
miscellaneous engine wiring (instruments,
etc). The mesh goes all the way to the
engine.

Also, Ancor makes a marine cable. Two or
more tinned wires individually insulated
inside a white "rubber" jacket. Kinda like
"Romex" used to wire houses, but more
flexable. I'd use that and the mesh.
