Re: Ground strap in bilge


This bilge bonding strap conducts micro volts. Stainless steel is much, much less conductive than copper. If I remember correctly, stainless steel has about 2-5% the conductivity of copper. Additionally, I had a client/engineer fashion one out of 1/8" x 2" stainless steel bar. He told me it was very difficult and to warn others that it wasn't worth it.

Thought of that, if that is all I can get it will be a last resort. Copper pipe is a blend of metal. I believe hat Bill R. is not a fan either. Hoping to find a good quality copper.
Thanks Keith take care

Any plumbing supply store. Copper tubing. Use a hammer to flatten it into a sheet.
