Ferro Hull Lightning Protection Ideas?

Hi everyone.

My sailing has always been limited to the San Diego area where lightning is not a problem, and Colorado, where when a storm comes up you just get off the lake. But I am looking to head south and think I should figure out which strategy I will use for lightning.

I was wondering what you would recommend? My hull is Ferro Cement, which I understand presents additional problems with lightning, so I would be especially interested in hearing from other ferro owners about their solutions.
