Re: Ground strap in bilge

I also considered using wire for the bilge bonding but I liked the idea of the heavier copper bar that you suggested and went that route. I think that wire or a thin strap is pretty easy to damage over time with bilge cleanings. I covered my new copper with very heavy glue coated shrink wrap which hopefully will make it last even longer and no sharp edges. The stiffness of the thicker bar also made it easy for me to place the end of the bar on the keel bolt and to hold orientation as the keel bolt was tightened.

Copper wire should work. I still prefer copper bar.
