Subject: [harryproa] Wiring and water runs?

I was wondering how the wiring will be run on the charter proa. I have
gotten the impression that the deck floor will be a single foam cored
panel. Will there just be conduits attached to the "top" of the floor,
or along the walls, or will it be embedded in the floor itself? There
is always a tradeoff between keeping it all out of sight, and still
having access to it for repairs.

On a related topic, I was also thinking about the wire runs for the
genset to the batteries and electric motors. I assume the batteries
will be in teh windward hull, for the ballast, so there will be long
runs to the electric motors in the lw hull. If the genset is on deck
for easy access, then it would seem that you have very long cable runs
for very high amperage circuits. It depends on the specs, but aren't
we talking about 100' or more of 00 or bigger cable?

I don't know if it is premature to talk about this, but I am curious.
