my mate has a stessl striker 5.5 and has had two lots of holes in the bottom of the hull...there are no sinkers or hooks lodged anywhere ..he has tested the wiring and cant find anything leaking to the hull..we are assuming the earth is coming from the engine..does anybody have any experience with this problem ???? rick

Hi Tackleberry.

That shouldn't be a problem. Your hull should be grounded, but that doesn't mean that current returning to the battery is going via the hull. There should be a return wire to do that. Problems occur when there isn't a return wire, it's broken or has a poor connection.

What you measured was the potential between the positive and the hull in a path that doesn't usually occur.

But I'm just a hack, so check with your mechanic next service.
