There are two different situations where people discuss "bonding" systems on a boat.
The first situation is when you bond the equipment together for lightning grounding and protection. In this case, the equipment definitely should be grounded to the DC electrical ground. The second is when you bond the underwater metal components for galvanic corrosion protection.
This is a situation where you wouldn't want to ground the "bonded" components to the DC ground, since that would increase the possibility of DC-system related accelerated galvanic erosion.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
