Pipes and cables on my 7.0 Humber ran out of the console on the Starboard side under a little deck mounted "tunnel" and then were encased in spiral binding and ran to the stern tight up against the underside of the tube on the deck, held in situ by Velcro strapping. Not the most discreet installation, but a doddle to work on if needed. Pretty safe from harm as hey were fairly well protected by the tube overhang...

Take them out sideways from the consol. Use the steering cable as the template since it is the most difficult to align. Then run them under the tube and cable tie them into a bunch. Despite what you might imagine, they fit quite neatly and they also stay put without any clamping. For the section from the console to the tube, Humber do a fibreglass section to cover this. Be sure to leave any cut cable tie ends against the hull rather than the tubes, they can be very sharp.

Edit: That was fast Mr Jono!

This is another example done by Humber. You can see the little bridge which doubles up as a sort of foot rest thing.....

Cables

When we had our humber the cables were laid on the deck but we found they got in the way etc. I glassed a drain pipe on the deck alongside the tubes and ran the cables through this.

Was very easy to do and kept everything out of the way and easy to service, The pipe ran almost to the transom then the last few feet the cable were tied into a bunch through a flexi pipe to avoid wear etc.

Hope that helps

Julian
