I've recently bought an '84 Catalina
25, and its wiring
needs to be completely redone. My biggest source of confusion right now is is determining where the ground wire is, if it exists at all. I don't believe it had an inboard motor
at any point, which further enhances my doubts. Is it possible (and appropriate) to ground the electrical system
on the keel bolts
alone? Should there be different grounding systems for my AC and DC systems, or can they all be connected to the same grounding bus, in turn connected to the bolt? Lastly, what about grounding for lightning
on the keel
, if other grounds are already connected?
