Are you speaking of the SSB dynaplates, or the zincs on the rudder?

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Bonding and Grounding Checks

Dear Amelians,

I have recently replaced an old and worn out bonding strap in the bilge with a new one, which I made from 3x41mm copper plate, and today I ran all bonding checks as advised by Bill in his book on page 138.

Everything has checked. 👍

Further to the above, I have also expected a near zero resistance between a new strap and the boat’s grounding plate, but in reality it was pretty far from being zero.

Was I wrong? Should it have been near zero? If yes, does anyone have a diagram and/or a description of where the grounding plate is connected to and how?

Thank you very much,
