Well, that is what I'm trying to figure out for my 1994 boat. My reading of the technical service bulletin was the official recommendation was to NOT disconnect if you have a metallic fill, which mine appears to be. The technical service bulletin quoted at the link above makes reference to a plastic fill by Perko. I went on Perko's website and found a fill that clearly has a plastic neck, for lack of a better term, but mine looks metallic. The Perko installation instructions say not to use a ground wire on that plastic design, but my design looks different. I'm going to call Mastercraft and see what they have to say.

Our pre '99 boats have metal fills. The service bulletin states:
Quote:
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.
MasterCraft knows what fuel fills were used on our boats and made the change for '99 forward.

Our pre-'99 boats (having metal filler necks) should continue to have the filler neck bonded to the boats ground bonding system.

I called Mastercraft today about this issue. They said they have put out nothing additional on this issue since the 2005 technical service bulletin referenced above.

Mike, no reason to remove a perfectly good bonding wire. You have a metal kneck just like mine? If so then leave it.
