YMMV
Ok I have read some of Blocks stuff and all seem related to antannnaes and ground communication stations etc, Maybe you could steer me to the specificdata and information on sailing vessels or boats in the water as I dfo nolt seem to be able to find this.

What kind of Robert Block methods have you emplyed on Tango to minimize lightening strike effects other than a simple grounding to a plate or the engine?

Would like to learn some other best practices as I have that on my boat already and that had NO effect.
