Default rigging spreader lights

Would someone be willing to tell me how to attach spreader lights to a fiberglass tee top, run the wires for the lights and where to hook the wire up? I am new to this rigging thing and would like to have some more info before I try to rig the lights myself. Thanks

There are an awful lot of variations so I think you need to post a picture or at least more information. Some tops have wire channels inside that you can use. Others require you to drill a hole above one of the supports with a cable gland and run the wire down the pipe into the console.

I've got an electronic box under the top. The power is routed up from the console through the tubing and then run over into the box. Inside the electronics box, the power is run to a switch box where there are separate switches for the front and rear spreader lights. As the previous poster said, there have to be lots of ways to do it. If you can, go look at a few boats and see what they did.....

Remember spreader lights will kill the battery faster than anything else.

Thanks for the ideas. I have put the boat up for the winter and in the spring I will get some pictures up for example.
Thanks the the folks who replied.
