Re: Lightning protecting "ZAP Bag"
Jeez, frogwatch, you've got to read up a little on history. Radar reflective flags, made with a metallized innner layer, were on the market at least 20 years ago. They went away because like most simple radar reflectors, they were tested and found to be substantially invisible. Check out th eold issues of Practical Sailor, I think the tests were in there among other places.
Creative thinking is great--but there's a reason why folks study what has been done, and what has failed, before. Y'all spinning your wheels for nothing.
