Hints for passing wires in Zodiac Pro 12 man

Am trying to pass wires for a bilge pump in a 12 man pro. The wires and cables are all concealed. Any hints for passing wires alongside existing wires and steering/shifting cables? I want to put the pump in the exposed bilge in front of the transom because it gets water in it in big seas.

Thanks, charles

If the engine throttle and gears are controlled by control cables. Disconnect one and pull out. Then put the wire on the end with some tape. Then push back through? Thats how I did it on my boat when the under deck trunking was very tight.

I use a piece of nylon air tube as a draw wire
You can normally push it through without removing any cables

Get yourself a cheap fish tape off eBay like this one.

Also, when you pass the cable through, attach a length of strong nylon twine that can stay in the conduit for the next time you need to pass something through.
