However, please note that this directive applies only to PLAS-TIC fuel fill assemblies with metallic caps and retaining chains; the U.S. Coast Guard and ABYC standards still require that any ALL-METALLIC fuel fills continue to be bonded.

Please be advised that all MasterCraft boats (all mod-els) manufactured from the 1999 model year through the present contain plastic fuel fill assemblies with metallic caps and retaining chains manufactured by Perko, Inc., as shown here, and therefore require the corrective action described in this Service Bulletin. However, beginning with Serial Num-ber MBCNLHG3A505, MasterCraft has altered its manufacturing process in accordance with the change in standards by the U.S. Coast Guard and ABYC to no longer attach a grounding wire from the plastic Perko fuel fill assembly to the boat’s bonding system.
So by those instructions, pre-'99 boats which have metal filler necks should keep the green grounding wire, correct?
