Are you considering grounding your boat?
Not sure about grounding the boat, we experienced a severe electrical storm last summer while sleeping on the boat in a marina........family didn't want to stay on the boat for fear of being hit so I am looking into lightning protection before we start the new sailing season (we have a bit of time yet, it's -8 to day)
