Our green lantern is corroded and the cable is also damaged. The cable enters the searchrail (pulpit) just above the deck. 

Does anyone know where is goes from there ?  
Is there a good location to pull a new cable from ?

In a 2005 model year, the main route for cables is along the port side. Under and behind all cupboards/wardrobes. Then rises to the cabin top & port side at the crash bulkhead. Thereís a small access path under the deck & above the crash bulkhead. Thatís a likely spot to pull a new cable segment through.

You'll probably find that the cables on both sides are corroded for about a meter or so once they come through the stanchion.  I found it easier to cut access holes in the forecabin (later covering them with removable wooden blanks) and replaced the damaged wiring with tinned wire.  The holes also allowed for the backing plates on the stanchions to be strengthened.

We managed to find the navigation light cables. We used an inspection camera (the black cable on the first image). Following its direction up to the underside of the deck leads to the pulpit where the cable it routed trough. 

The plan now is to drill a larger hole (where the camera is) and pull a new cable from there.

The second image shows that a marine electrician has routed the windlass cables trough the crash bulkhead without prober sealing (pipe in the center of an inspection hatch). I hope it's above the waterline :-(

On my 370 I went in from the anchor locker.  Access port cut on both sides and replaced the cables back around 1m+.  I could not get the cables routed back up the stainless steel work so used 2 quality waterproof deck fittings and ran them that was. 10 year later and all is still working fine.
