specs on my 85 Pearson 34 are #8 & I was thinking that might be too small (but I'm not going to change it all). A lightning strike is not exactly a small dose of electricity.
Fastenal has a hammer strike crimper for cable lugs for $12-13. Just bought, first use will be this spring but sure looks fine.
