I found nice trunking from IBS so I bought some. A bit pricy but it looks good and the end fittings are good

+1 for Copex

Also if you use the 30mm stuff to cross the deck, you can run three (or more) in parallel and you get something a lot less likely to trip you up than a big 4" trunk!

I did that to the foot of the A- frame, then combined two of them into a 2" Yam trunk up to the engine for neatness - the third went staight up the botom of the A- frame "pipe" for a seamless join and the fourth was kept in parallel as it carries the fuel hose for the forward tank(s) and it was tie wrapped to the steering toob to get a nice little connector just below the engine Ther is a photo on here somewhere.....

RIBase
Another way is to get the bigger dia stuff and slit it down lengthwise wrap round and secure with cable ties. means easier acess in futire and all it costs you is cable ties

....and means you can fit cables with moulded plugs through trunking they wouldnlt otherwise fit through!

Yes, I had to pull & re-feed 3 cabbl;es after buying toys that needed me to stuff a sounder cable with a 20-odd mm connector through an already busy 30mm copex.......
