Finally got to do some more work on my boat tonight. I was able to run wires for the running light through 1/2" electrical pvc conduit and install light bases at front and back of boat.

Got all the wiring done on my boat and everything is operating correctly. Steelflex came in yesterday along with the rustoleum deck restore product that I ordered. Now i can do the floor and hopefully it will come out as planned. The steel flex will be a summertime project when Im using a smaller boat in the river. Now some pics...

How did you secure the PVC conduit to the boat?

The pvc actually secures itself. The fit is so tight that u have to use a hammer to move it between the rib of the biat and the gunnel.

I coated my the front floor in my boat today with the rustoleum restore product and I will see what it is like in the morning I'm hoping that it will turn out equal to what I'm looking for. But if it doesnt i will look into the skid no more product and thank you for your input.

Its been awhile since Ive posted anything but ive taken the boat out twice. The first trip i discovered the livewell was leaking into the boat and had to come back in. I patched the rivets took it back out and it was still leaking so ive ordered some 5200 and im going to drill Ids all rivets in livewell and replace with machine screws sealant and rubber washers. But on a better side i purchased a new lowe 1032 and have done a few mods to it such as adding seat bases and wheels.
