Default Running wires / cables to center console

How does one wires / cables from the bilge to the center console? I assume there must be a way, cause everyone seems to do it.

Btw: boat is an '00 Scarab Sport 302

Thanks!

my 302 had a PVC tube run just under the floor outside the fuel tank next to the inboard side of each stringer, if I remember right all the mechanicals went in one tube and the electrics were in the other tube, mine was a 97 with one fuel tank

Bill,
on the 302 they run by the starboard, by the batteries disconnect switches, they run under the storage comparment, remove a round plate inside the storage compartmen and is tight but you can stick your arm in it, pick up the wire you're running and continue to the front, with your arm towards the front feel a pvc pipe that will run on top of fuel tank, run wire truogh it, now go under your center console and open the front fuel tank acces, use a flash light, stick your arm toward the center to the left will be the pvc pipe mentioned before, there is your wire, been there, done that

bill,
one more thing i forgot, never run live 12 volt wires on top of your fuel tank(s) that's why they runned them by the side (starboard-RH) of ur boat
