was going to put in tips and tricks but would not let me.

So I have a 2016 South Bay 24'.. it doesnt need a rebuild.. but I'm trying to add some more lights to it. So in looking at the console I have lots of extra switches that goto nothing. So trying to figure out where those wires might lead. I want to add in some front LED's, I was hoping the wires would be under the caps that are there for the factory ones, but nope. So I'm sure I can run wires under the bottom in those channels.. but how the heck do you then get the wire up in the console ? Since the pontoon is in the way of where I think that whole wire harness goes under the boat.  Just trying to get some advice on how you run new wires from the console to the front and back... really my issue is how to get them into the console without making whole in the underside aluminum ??

any ideas ?

so that looks to be riveted on there.. just drill them out and then pop back in with pan head stainless screws or something ?

yes a lot of people install the panels with SS screws. You should be fie. Run some small rope for pull strings for future installs....
