Digging deep into the bilge of my 1982 CS33 I noticed that one of the most forward keel bolts is used for grounding. There is a screw threaded on top of the keelbolt and the screw holds down some number of wires. it was hard to see so I didnt count but I did see that all of that contraption is pretty much submerged in water. Question to fellow CS members if this is A) normal? and B) is there a better way to achieving grounding?

Thanks a bunch!

I have the same ground strap on my CS30 looks original to the Boat. It is only there to bond the mast to the keel to dissipate any static charge it may attract. If what you have is regular ground wires for the 12V dc system then it is improperly utilized as a system ground for house power. More than one wire I think is an issue here.
