I can't answer wrt the 300/301 but I had a similar problem on my 415. The wire to the port bow light goes down the pulpit tube and is not directly accessible below. I decided the simplest solution to gain access was to cut a circular 3" hole in the forecabin roof directly below the pulpit tube. After connecting the old feed to the new bow light cable, I covered the hole with a suitably sized square white 'ventilation' cover. To balance things up, I also fitted the same cover on the starboard size.

cheers thanks.. I had an epiphany in the early hours this morning , I think the only solution is take the ceiling panels down to get access to the top of the wooden panels on the side of the bow cabin and I’m hoping I should be able to get the old wiring there if not I can drill and seal around the cable from the anchor locker snd lay the cable behind the wood panelling and then feed it into the saloon and then down into the distribution cupboard and panels.. but it’s bloody annoying

The feed for the nav lights is via a glassed in  conduit tube to the anchor locker. 
This conduit tube is also glassed to the hull side between the hull and internal mahogany faced trim. 

The trim can't be easily removed without destroying it.

I am 99 percent sure that removing the ceiling panel will not help you.

I think your best way to reconnect with any existing cable is to remove the sealant around your cable as it comes out of the conduit in the anchor locker. Then try and pull some cable  through. 

If this fails or you don't have enough to get a crimp on then best use the old cable as a mousing line for pulling a new one through from the electrical panel in the main cabin.

You can get much better access to the electrical panel and the cables by completely removing the port side main cabin lockers.  They are only fastened at the bottom by four screws no sealant involved. Really improves access for sorting out the electrics.
