Let me clarify...

The bonding system to prevent galvanic corrosion is different from that used to create a lightning safety system, where the major components of the rigging and deck hardware are bonded together to create a protective cage and grounded to provide a path for the lightning strike.

Faith of Holland is correct in saying that the galvanic bonding system should be connected to the battery's negative post and the DC grounding system.
