    Try pushing a stiff hard wire though and use as a pull wire

    That's what I did. Solder and marine adhesive shrink sleeve. The switch harness doesn't come with terminals crimped on the wire ends anyway.

    that's a cakewalk for anybody that does marine electrics. If you do opt to splice outside of the waterproof area, make it a solid one with a solid spice, solder, heat shrink and rtv to assure 100% water tight goodness. I've had a few in for failures by "other shops" that have shortcut the process.

    A post repair is one job you don't want to have problems with when you're far from shore

    I just cut the wires behind the old post, tape the new wires to the old wires and pull it through the bars.
