    Fishing Elec wire to anchor locker, 285

    Hi, need to run a wire from the helm to the anchor chain/rope locker for a bow light, what is the best way?

    This is not specific to a 285 but may help with your project: Direct burial grade Cat-6 cable works great as a wire fishing tool on boats. It is stiff enough to push through many tight areas but it has enough flexibility. The best part is that you can often get a remnant length of it free from an installer. I've used it to pull wire directly, as well as to pull a string to be used for the wire.

    Don't forget to pull a string along with the new wire. It will make it easier to pull another wire in the future.
