Re: Ground strap in bilge

Alan, I believe you have hit the nail on the head. It’s all about the resistance at the joint to the bolt. A wide flat strap provides the maximum surface contact area between the strap and the bolt. That is the most effective way to minimise the resistance at the joint. A thicker flat strap (than the original) will provide similar resistance (when properly installed) and better longevity.

I’m not looking forward to this job when my time comes, sounds really awkward!
