GRRRRR Big Sparks From The Sky!
I cant read all 13 pages of this thread. But would like to share a recent strike story with all of you. Please forgive me if I am jumping protocall.
8 weeks ago during a storm here in Miami
, FL my anchor alarm
went off. As I headed out to deck
we were hit! At this point I am unable to see clearly and had complete loss of my 12v system. Not a deal breaker if you have a diesel
. My atomic 4 gas lost
its alernator, electronic ignition, coil, fuel pump
, rotor and cap. Crud I was screwed at this point. Clocking 70 knot
gusts hanging on a stern anchor
is not fun! Especially when you are looking at a really hard seawall.
TO keep this short I lost
nothing but my ignition system. Everything else was bonded to the keel
. The bonding wire from the engine
block to the keel
was broke. So please check that wire people.
