      There is a ground cable loose in the locker-trunk of cockpit starbord of mizzen mast. The only metal parts there are the fuel cover and the cockpit water hose. But I can´t find where it should be attached to.

      Anybody have any suggestions.

        Hello Fernando, Probably the connection to the "ground"/ stray current system for the
        diesel tank filler neck. It has been many years since I have owned a Super Maramu but from
        memory (oh dear.) The wire is green, the end is stripped to expose the copper wire which
        is the clamped to the metal part of the filler neck with a stainless steel hose clamp. As
        I am away from the seashore for a few days, can someone who is aboard their Super Maramu
        check this out?
        If not, I'll have a look at my 54, which has the same basic system, and then report back
        to you.

        All the best,
        Joel F. Potter

            I also hook a zinc guppy to this connection and hang it over the side for additional galvanic protection when at a dock. Fair Winds, Eric Amel Super Maramu
