    553.8

    When feeding multiple floating homes with feeders from shore, would you need a grounding electrode for each structure as you do per 250.32?

    Good question!
    Some time ago I think there was a thread somewhat similar to this about oil rigs.
    And If I remember they hung a ground rod in the water........,but who am I to say.

      I would say no, 553.8 allows
      (A) Grounding of Electrical and Nonelectrical Parts. Ground-
      ing of both electrical and nonelectrical parts in a floating building
      shall be through connection to a grounding bus in the building
      panelboard.
      To me that means you don't need to dangle a ground rod in the sea
      Comments based on 2017 NEC unless otherwise noted.
