Installing radar and running cable to helm

I'm installing radar just below the the lower spreader. What's the best run for getting cable to the helm station from the bottom of the mast? How long of a cable do I need?

Where do I go to get a layout of the boats factory layout for running wire? 2001
Is there what I would call a BLUE PRINT out there for 2001? Learning my boat and working toward having it dialed it for cruising in the near future! How to get more usable space in galley cabinet, making fridge more user friendly and freezer too, making the engine rooms storage friendly....
Anyway... Thanks all for your assistance here on CF!

Re: Installing radar and running cable to helm

The wiring in the mast comes out in the anchor locker and runs through the bulk heard under the saloon seats. Then it will go down to the starboard hull and run under the saloon floor back to the helm area and up from there. Take the panels down in the hallway and look under the floor. There are a bunch of conduit pipes running for and aft.
