Re: thru hull bonding

Definitely either a great idea, or a terrible idea... depending on who you ask.

The consensus seems to be NOT to do it.... yet out of my 11 through-hulls, I was able to instantly identify a couple on which the bonding wire had failed, by their more-corroded-than-the-others appearance.

Re: thru hull bonding

It's a NO for me.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
