Re: '83 Jason 35- stainless bolts in the bilge.

Thanks so much, Mechsmith. That's great. I'm so glad to find out all these things about this boat. I'll look into running that copper wire. Why copper? Does it conduct better? An will running from the chainplates to those bolts direct the path of a strike straight into the water bypassing all of my other electronics such as lights, instruments, etc.? Oh, one more thing. Can I just put on two more nuts added onto the existing bolts connecting the copper wire? Will that be sufficient?

And by the way, to those wondering or have commented, no, I didn't have the Jason 35 lifted and inspected. No cash for such. But, for the asking price (nothing), I didn't think it practical.
