Catalina 36 mkII compartment access

Does anyone know how to access the space directly below the electrical panel between the hull and the liner? I currently have a small (maybe 5") diameter access hole but I need to run some wires in the area between the liner and the hull past the two seats on the starboard side and above the two little storage holes. There are conduits built in but they are full but even if they were not completely full, access below the electrical panel to those conduits is close to impossible. It seems like I would have to remove all the cabinets along the side of the hull or something equally silly and I am hoping for something easier. If I can get full access to the space below the electrical panel I can possibly fish a wire through. My attempt of doing that from the other end of the conduits and towards the electrical panel failed.
Has anybody gone through this exercise? If so, any words of wisdom ?

Wire diameter?#6 or #12, #22,?
Maybe just try some conduit lube to ease a fish tape, or coated 1/8" wire, otherwise, find a different run.

Possibly add your own access hole and trim to hide it. Where it's best, to aid.

8 or so runs of #18 .... a big bundle. Everything to control my lithium bank which is in the bow. The power lines are going a different route.

Post this over at the Catalina 36 site and you should get a good answer. I have not had to run anything forward on my 36 MKII but it's a challenging area to work in.
