Re: What to do after a lightning strike?

Check your head sail if on a furling it may be damaged at the joints of the aluminium, heat builds up on those joints due to the resistance. You may need sail repair or replacement.

Hey Jay, yes, it's a bummer, hope to be back in the water in time for GPT-PCOLA, six weeks away but may not be enough time....
