Running a NMEA 2000 on 342FV, Best way to get from headunit in cabin to cockpit?

Hey guys,

What is the best way to run new cables from behind the headunit to back in the cabin area?  Is there a factory cable chase?  I remember seeing the vinyl glued down behind the radio where the cables go into the wall.  Whats the best method before I start tearing my boat apart.

    I don't know if they do it the same on the 260 EC (my boat), but from the helm the cables drop down into a cavity at the footwall of my mid-berth bed. I have my AC there, so I can remove the grill and get access to the wires dropped down. From there, wires run into the head. It might be possible to run a wire behind the head and then through to the access space under the v-berth seats.

    Alternatively, I can also see audio cables going from the helm to what looks like the top of the head and into the TV cabinet. When I pull off my switch panel, I can clearly see this.  You may be able to fish a wire in via this direction.
