Does anybody have any suggestions or pictures of how you ran your wires for your lights. I have a flush deck and caint get under it. Also my floor and sides are lined together so I would rather not cut the liner to go under neath. Also any pics of your switch location would be helpful.

I'd just run some seal tight flex conduit under the gunnels up to you switch box. then more seal tight with multiangle connectors to come in the back of the lights.

I drilled a hole for the 1/2'' liquid tite flex and attached it to my fixtures as seen. The liquid tite flex is super tough and pretty easy to work with. I have since switched out the plastic connectors at the fixtures to metal connectors.

No I definatly wouldn't use romex. Romex is a single stranded wire. You would be much better off with a multi-stranded wire. I have digital ballasts so I just ran the output cord from the ballast to the fixture and wired it up. Its 16/3 stranded wire. Just like an extension cord you buy and Home Depot.

Here is a picture of what the wire looks like and how I attached it. But sure to leave out the wire nuts in your setup. They will cause you problems later. I use only crimp and shrink connectors.
