Hi. I am trying to run a wire to the [combined sidelight lamp at the bow of a Boston Whaler boat] without having exposed wiring or conduit. The original wiring was damaged and I am trying at all cost not to run a wire on inside of hull up to that [lamp]. My dad had [a lamp] mounted on top ofthe wooden center console, but [I] thought it would be better all the way in front where it belongs. Anyone who is familiar with the older Montauk hull knows that you can't hide any wiring or mechanicals anywhere thanks to the hull within a hull and foam design. The double edge sword is what I am dealing with now with this wiring. Great hull design until you have to snake a wire you wish to hide! My idea is to use stainless brake line as for a car. [I] found a length available in one 20 foot length for a conduit. [I] really do not want to put the extra screw holes in the boat for hanging the stainless along side. [A]ny ideas? [I] really want [a combined sidelight lamp] on bow - but [I] hate the idea of having to look at the wire to it. [T]hanks in advance - Paul

You cannot show a combined sidelight lamp from anywhere except the bow of a small boat. For more on navigation lamps see the FAQ:

If you have a 1965 Boston Whaler boat you do not have a MONTAUK. See the REFERENCE section for information on model names for the 16 and 17-foot hulls.
