redcorvette1995 is on a distinguished road
Using a grounding plate would be easier.
It is a metal plate with two bolts. Typically about 12" to 18" long by 6" wide.

Find a spot on the hull below the water line, measure and drill the two holes (typically about 3/8") slather on some 3M 5200, push in the plate. On the inside of the hull tighten down the bolts and attach your ground cable to one of the bolts.

Cheers,

Todd
