I'm replacing some of my keel bolts
, and I need to reattach the lightning
ground wire that I installed previously. The wire is size 4/0 AWG and the keel
bolt diameter is 5/8". Unfortunately nobody seems to make a terminal or grounding in this size. I could take a 1/2" stud size terminal and drill it out, but that would leave me without much metal for the nut to sit on. I had a clamping battery
terminal connector on it before, but that won't be possible if I seal up the bolts well with epoxy
like I need to.
Any idea on a different connector that would work for this application, or a way to fashion it myself? I was thinking of making it out of some thick copper sheeting, but I'm not sure if I'm losing much without the tinned coating, or by crimping it on myself like that.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
