Grounding of minus

I have removed my SSB and I have two separate grounding plates left. Iím thinking about using one to ground engine MINUS on. Is this OK, since I do not have ant keel bolts(keel is molded in).? Any idea what to use the second one for? Does it make sense to ground 220V on it?

Regards
Robert

Re: Grounding of minus

Given the question you ask and how you ask it, you may be over your head. If you don't know the difference between a grounded conductor, a grounding conductor and a bonding conductor Call an ABYC Certified Marine Electrician.
