Re: DC/AC grounding

Only the secondary ground (Green wire) should be grounded aboard the boat. The primary ground goes back to the AC power source. This is different from house wiring, where the primary and secondary grounds are linked in the panel. You will need a conductor to the water; a ground plate will work.
