Peter,

I have one end of this grouper permanently attached to the bonding at the fuel fill bonding clamp.

As soon as I pull into a marina I always drop it over the side. I had to rig a line to the groupers cable so there was not stain on the wire. You would be surprised how quickly the grouper gets dissolve in some marinas.

Peter,

 

While you are waiting to install a galvanic isolator, consider buying an additional easy to install (i.e. no haul out required) sacrificial anode like this one or similar:  https://www.amazon.com/Martyr-CMGROUPERZ-Alloy-Grouper-Hanging/dp/B001TK98LM

 

It can be connected to the green/yellow bonding wire at a terminal in the Aft locker and then just hung off the back of the boat.  It will give you some additional protection of your underwater metal until you get the issue sorted.
