This is what

This is what the ABYC has to say. ABYC is NOT mandatory but a suggested good standard based on years of combined experience by its many voting members.

From ABYC P-06 standard:

6.5.5.2 If a non-conductive flexible coupling is used, an alternative means of grounding the shaft must be provided.

If the engine is acting as the ground point, which it is on most boats being built, then you'll either need to jump over the coupling with a wire or find an alternative means of grounding the shaft. They are fairly clear that the shaft should be grounded, they actually used the words "must be grounded".....
