I agree with Gordon. We did carry a heavy wire, one of a set of of  
battery cables; it has a copper plate about 6"X3" bolted to it which  
we used to attach to the back stay and trail overboard behind us if we  
felt endangered. But I have read that there is nothing made by man  
that will contain the energy in a lightening strike. We are old now  
and cruise only in the Toronto area and the CN Tower takes most of the  
hits so we rely on it and good luck.
