Re: Bonding and Grounding Checks

When you say "grounding plate" I assume you are talking about the sintered metal plate on the starboard side of the rudder skeg.  The "grounding plate" would have been connected to the bonding system IF the boat was delivered by Amel without an SSB radio installed.

If the boat was delivered WITH an SSB installed, then the grounding plate was connected only to the radio transmitter ground, and would show close to an open circuit to the bonding system.
