For all those with under deck trunking...

2 questions:

1 - How do the cables protrude from the trunking at the stern by the engine?

2 - How do you drain any water from it?

We could have had under deck, but were dissuaded for 2 reasons:

1 - We were told the cables would sprout upwards from an under deck system due to having to bend upwards to come out agan. As we have a bottle rack at the back of the boat, any dive cylinders dropped on the cables would bend them badly and cause damage. (We saw this on the tornado demo boat)

2 - under deck cabling was hard to drain and could end up getting water into the hull - thinking about this one its probably because they hadnt got a very good system of doing it.

In the end we had an solid aluminium cable run on top of the deck going backwards from the console, which works pretty well to protect the cables and keep them flat and unkinked. I havent fallen over it so far!

Cable Questions?

Thorper,

I'll post some pics when I get home of my setup, & the answers will be fairly obvious.

You could always buy a Falcon.....Centre channel runs full length with access into both the console and the rear Battery locker.

Ours simply exit at two large "slots" in the top of the bilge pump well.

The deck slopes down to the stern, so both the conduit and the deck surfaces drain into the well.

Because of the way Humber attach the tubes to the hull, you'll find that the cables will lie very nicely under the bottom of the Humber tubes. Make sure your steering cable is also routed that way. The bit of channel Humber supply to link across the deck doesn't look too cool but is does work fine. Do not use spiral wrap to bind the cables along their length. Use re-usable cable ties. You can use spiral wrap at the stern to protect fuel lines etc. When/if trimming the ends from the ties, ensure they are not placed to fret the tubes by their sharp ends.
A good supplier for reusable and durable ties is a plant nursery which sells trees. They are used to fasten the protective plastic sheath which is used to protect the base of a young tree for a few years of its early life. They are very strong, last for years and the end can be turned back into the clip rather than cut off.
