You need to do some research...the counterpoise is not meant to be a bonding system or voltage sink for non radio stuff...if you are seeing a spark - there is something amiss..ground loop? or something feeding that tape? Stray current from shore power or mis wired boat near by....

I would not attach it, until you find the source...you are asking for galvanic issues...and damage to electronics...

YMMV, and I am sure others will post...
