Create a proper bonding and grounding system using Guest Dynaplate grounding shoes to reduce the risk of serious hull damage and electrical shock associated with boat lightning strikes.
A proper bonding and grounding system using Dynaplate shoes will help provide a direct, controlled high-capacity path for lightning dissipation.
SSB and AM radio transmitters rely upon a proper size ground to operate to their designed capacity. A dynaplate grounding shoe helps provide a large solid surface (the water surrounding the boat) to "push off" from. This is technically known as "counterpoise", and the other necessary half of the antenna system.
The bronze Dynaplate material also serves as the next sacrificial metal on the galvanic scale after the zincs, providing another buffer against corrosion of stainless steel parts.

"The bronze Dynaplate material also serves as the next sacrificial metal on the galvanic scale after the zincs, providing another buffer against corrosion of stainless steel parts...." That sounds expensive!!! If you aren't going to change out zincs, don't buy this product. Mount your plate so that bolts don't have to be removed to clean or replace it. Use a non-sintered plate for lightning protection.
