lightning protection

Well I have been reading some discussions on this and i'm confused on which way to go.
this past wknd we were coming back from Shelter Island NY to home port in Old Saybrook Ct we were sorrounded by t-storms nothing real close, but we had to anchor outside our harbor(ITA) for about an hr till the tide gave me enough water to get in at one point my wife went out in the ****pit and then called me out to ask what the noise was - the mast was buzzing with static- it shortly went away.
? any way prevent this? We have a 1978 28' Newport I don't beleive I have any grounding. Suggestions? two yrs ago I got hit at the dock, had to replace VHF, depth finder, and al nav lighting.
Can't get enough of sailing!!!
