Too many cables

So far so good, the (new to me )Opti is now sat on it's new SS transom plate and I can get life into the smartcraft gauges, I'm about to re-rig properly via the under deck trunk and I can see a problem, there's more than enough room for all control lines, canbus, steering etc to enter the trunking but only a small circular hole under the cox's seat for it all to exit, the under deck trunk stops just as it passes the bulkhead seperating the battery compartment from the front section so If I were to cut room for a small hatch I'd be letting any water travelling along the trunking into the base of the console and also down into the hull
Are there suitable glands to allow all these cables through, or can I seal the trunking at the rear, or is there another way?

Sorry I can't help you 'K' as in my Ribcraft the trunking comes out in the consul. The only help I can give is that at the stern all the cables etc appear from the floor thru a gland seal, if that helps. It is watertight unless left submerged for any length of time but just open the inner bung and the water comes out into the well.
BTW your engine looks the dugs bullocks!!

All that spaghetti hanging out looks a proper 'lash-up'.

Jambo you might just have done mate!
Perhaps I could extend the trunking up through the floor into a flexible hose bringing it up toward the console and away from any water that might enter at the back.

Yes it's bad but that's the 'before ' version, I went down to Black Dog yesterday and left with a big bag of goodies, included in which was a nice new Merc rigging kit & hose
(I know I can't let Nick's stainless look bad )

Yes very, 3mm 316 grade with a nice finish on it, managed to bend it over the top of the transom and back down far enough that the bolts pass back through it (lot's said they couldn't do that) I dropped it off on Friday pm and he rang me saturday at about 1, all finished
Will be taking the A frame down to him next, he's going to make my middle leg bigger, Fran is really keen for me to have it done
