Re: 12V ground on the boat

I can't make much comment other than I will be watching. I think there is some disagreement as to whether to bond (tie all your metal parts together to the ground) or not. I will say that I have only seen the strip of copper tape on SSB installs, is that the radio you are talking about with the antenna running up the back stay? normally the VHF antenna is run down the mast.

Project boat, lots of work to be done!
