Lightning Anyone?

I can tell you from experience that bonding will not stop a strike and there is no proof that it mitigates the damage.

When a few million volts hits you, there''s not much you can do. Sometimes the damage is minor, sometimes it blows a thru-hull out.

Worrying about it is like worrying about a meteor striking you - there''s not much point.
