Does anyone know for sure where the grounding bus bar is on a Pearson 26?

There should be one by the fuses/switch panel, but otherwise there likely isn't one with all fixed loads attached directly to the battery or battery switch. This is a good thing to fix.

My 1986 Pearson (a 26 is older) had a pretty antiquated electrical setup.

Alex...my switch panel only has a positive feed coming into it. There is only one wire leading away from the (-) post on the battery. There is a bar somewhere-my guess it's located somewhere in the cabin but I haven't located it.

On the p28 it is mounted on the starboard cockpit locker bulkhead.
