Solway 36, how to replace wires in the mast ?

Hi WOA members ! I am currently refitting the Proctor main mast of a Solway 36. I've been surprised: after removing all screws and fitting parts the electric cables and the VHF cable do not move at all. They seem to be "hold" somewhere inside the mast. Does someone know how to replace thes...
