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

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.

Basically no.

Read the links sent by earlier posters. Twice.
