I believe the lighting leads are located on the copper bilge strap. Previous emails have indicated that this strap rots away over time and has to be replaced. We just did it with the info posted on this sight previousley with the larger diameter strap.

hello all,
i would like to know if anyone had experienced a lightning strike on
an amel boat, and any sound strategies used against a lightning strike
other than throwing a chain to the sea connected to the mast or shrouds?
any input will be greatly appreciated.
