I noted I have a short in the wiring on my 17 Standard... seems easier to run new conductor.. looks like it is in a conduit in the starboard rub rail.. suggestions for hauling new cable through? or do I have to remove the rubrail to get at it..

You needn't remove the rub rail, only the rub rail insert. This is very easy to do. Unscrew one end at the stern and peel it out. Run your wire and reinstall the insert using a flat bladed tool like a screw driver, putty knife, flat bar, ect.

While you're in there, I suggest your upgrade to 16ga tinnned wire like Ancor's marine grade sheathed duplex wire.

Thanks Gang,

BTW the previous owner suggested the light had an intermittent problem... was this a common problem for other such bow lights? I would agree, wire guage makes a huge difference.. learned that with wiring Downriggers.. can pull a lot of amps when pulling a heavy ball.
