"Where do you draw the line." The starboard duct on my vipermax was allso packed tight, surprising how many cables run through it.

Its not the the duct is completely stuffed its just that when you try to drag a rubber hose through it tends to drag against all the other cables etc. So a little bit of washing up liquid makes the job a damn slight easier.
Do you not have a duct on each side feeding both transom boxes from the console ?

Also when we run power cables at work we down grade their load rating when in ducting as we don't class it as "free air"

I have done a similar job on my Ribcraft (Hydraulic Steering) and I found the same thing, so I covered the tube with olive oil. I also took up the slack in the other cables because as Chris said it’s easy to drag other cables through and this seemed to help.
