    Drill is the cleanest.

    Use a rubber gromet of the right size, and silicone it before putting it in.

    If I wasn't interested in putting new holes in my rig, I would find one of the rubber body plugs, and punch a hole in it, feed the wire through, and then silicone the wire, and plug to keep the water out.

    Otherwise I agree with 84Fiero.
