Is it common to route cabling through the tubing in the A frame? Not seen it on the boats I've been on, mind they tend to be similar!!

Yes its very common, I don't think I've only ever seen a handful wired on the outside of the A-frame and they tended to be older RIBs. Different strokes for different folks I guess. Looks neater and gives the cables added protection IMHO.

Just out of interest, how do you stop the rattles? Must be difficult to stop the wires hitting the inside of the tubing?

For the small rattles that just niggle me, I use the noise cancelling lever on the console. You push it all the way forward, and then I can't hear anything!!

Seriously, the cables on mine are all bound up in a type of 'soft' plastic wrapping, which (I think) must either deaden any noise from the cables in the frame, or be stiff enough that they don't bang around. I've been sat on the engine box when Nicky has been driving at various speeds, and I've not heard any rattling noises in the a-frame. The nav lights, GPS and VHF cables are all internal on mine.
