Mast wiring was replaced utilizing Anchor brand Mast wire which has 5 wire strands. 3 used for positives to anchor, deck & steaming lights, One wire strand is the negative wire and the 5th wire was used as a positive lead to the forward main cabin fan located on the cabin mast column, Since these fans are multi-directional, the fan can swing out, locked and angled down to provide cooling to the VBerth area and forward main cabin area. the 2bd fan is located in the quarterberth area normally kept flush to the cabin side, locked, but when utilized, can be swing out and angled appropriately to service the quarter berth and aft main cabin area. These two fans are excellent - quiet, low amp draw and when used, mostly in the low setting , sometimes medium setting but not needed in the high setting.
