Conyplex Wiring
« on: 05 March, 2007, 04:32:12 »
Hi Folks,

Starting to work on my 1969 29' with hopes of launching by July 1, but have many things to correct/update and as we all have; too little time... I am planning to rewire most electrical circuits and already need some advice! Where do the wires route throughout the cabin for the cabin lighting? Is there any access to the wires above the headliner other than from the positions the cabin lights attach?

Also, the bow nav lights were removed from their mounting plates and there is no evidence of any of their connecting wires left. I'm not sure if the person who removed the light assemblies just gave a good yank and pulled the wires with the lights. I beleive they route through the stanchion/pulpit tubing which seems like it will be a challenging task to rewire them without using the old wires as pull-guides to route them through. But. I hope a member has rewired their boat and can share share some tips.

Any assistance is appreciated!

Thanks,

LATONA



There have been some splice work in the past

Hi, I head the same issue last year with my C30. The wiring for the cabinlights are lead between the inner and outershell and afaik ther is nog easy acces to these wires. Luckilly for me they were still in one piece so I reused them. The assumpion about the bowlights is correct, they route through the starbord part of te pullpit to the frontcabin and then on the starbord site to the electrical panel.

hth,
BJ

On my c25 1967 I had the same problem with the interior lights. In the end I re-used all the old cables, exept for one Interior light on the roof, Eventualy i put the cable in a strip of wood 10mm thick, 20 mm wide,attached to the roof. When I have more time, I will throw it out, and put in a spotlight on the wall, shining at the roof. That should look good!
The other lights I can't help you with, they all worked properly.
good luck!

Thanks all for the information.
Geez, wiring in the pulpits... Sounds like I'll have to remove them in order to rewire the bow lights. Oh well, I'll check the gelcoat and backing and repot them.

Happy Sailing!

Hi Joris,

Thanks for the information. I translated "citeer" to English (Babblefish) and got "Sermon Chair." So I figure I should define my meaning...

We call the metal rails on the bow and stern "pulpits." I do not know why or where the name originated from.

Thanks for your help.

Tim
