Re: Copper earthing/bonding strap broken in bilge on Amel 54

No sweat managed with some difficulty to find the inside nuts which hold the earth plate on. The old one munted but found a replacement which should arrive in 24 hours

 

On the copper bar I thought the connection might be better to drill and tap a small hole it the top of the nut and screw the bar onto it rather than putting under the keel boat nut. . Access looks a bit easier without an engine. Putting a D250 volvo in which is identical to the prima but has the advantage of a gear not a cam driven water. Pump and a timing chain not a rubber band……..and it comes with a 5 year warranty.

Brilliant Denise Bill and others

 

NGA Waka is on the slip so brought copper bar and following your contributions 

 

Any one replaced the HF radio earth sitting under the hills bit abaft of the mizzenmast on a Santorin?  Ours is pretty pitted and could usefully be replaced

 

Any thoughts gratefully received
