Safety Benefits of Proper Bonding and Grounding
A proper bonding and grounding system using grounding shoes will not reduce the chances of a lightning strike on your boat. It will, however, reduce the possibility of severe hull damage and electrical shock potential.  A proper bonding and grounding system will help provide a direct, controlled high-capacity path for lightning dissipation.

Enhances Electronic Performance
SSB and HAM radio transmitters rely upon a proper size ground to operate to their designed capacity. A grounding shoe helps provide a large solid surface (the water surrounding your boat) to "push off" from. This is technically known as "counterpoise", and the other necessary half of your antenna system.

The bronze material also serves as the next sacrificial metal on the galvanic scale after your zincs, providing another buffer against corrosion of stainless steel parts.
