Steve thinks Stan Honey’s article on marine grounding systems is the definitive work as of June, 2001. Stan has tackled the thorny issues that other writers get faint-hearted about: how to resolve the apparently conflicting requirements for DC and AC grounds, HF counterpoise, lightning down-conductors and ground, and how to avoid electrolysis and galvanic corrosion.
This article was originally published in the October 15, 1996 issue of Practical Sailor. Jim Corenman has republished Stan’s article to ensure that is available to all of us who need the best.
And the companion definitive work on lightning protection systems by Dr. Ewen Thompson.
