Re: What do you add (to improve) your bottom paint?
Wingnwing did some sort of copper bottom this year. Wonder how a copper bottom plate would work in a T Storm...YIKES
The safest place to be in a thunderstorm is inside a metal box, aka Faraday Cage, the principle being that the field strength inside a conductive box will be zero. So I imagine a copper-hulled boat would be pretty safe, just like a steel ship (provided you are INSIDE)
