I upgraded the mast’s wiring so I could install a deck light. I used the old stainless steel mast rigging to feed the new four strand wire inside the mast. On the advice of Kevin from Catalina Direct, I put cable ties every foot along the new wire to prevent it banging around inside the mast. Wiring the Anchor light was straight forward as was installing the deck/steaming light and the new VHF antenna cable.
