Bonding/ground wire for fuel fill fitting question?

As I have been working my way through the restoration of my 87 PS190, I discovered that I need to replace the metal fuel fill deck fitting. I have read on several sites that it must have a bond wire to prevent spark discharge while fueling. My boat did not have one. Im assuming that it would not hurt to put one on it, however, my question is this; Where does it attach to and how do I complete the ground? It appears to me that I could clamp it between the rubber hose and terminate it at the fuel sender ground wire. Is this acceptable? What gauge wire is recommended? Thank you for any answers or suggestions!

I’ll have to look through the service bulletins when I get home from the lake, but I think there was a coast guard and thus an MC change to this procedure. I’m sure someone will be along ith the update before I get home net week so it’ll probably get answered before then.
