Lightning Information (links)

Some excellent on-line resources on ‘Lightning & Boats’ - Goto:

“Lightning And Sailboats” - by Ewen M Thomson, Univ. Fla. 1992. Sea Grant Publication
The best basic lightning primer for boaters

“The Applicability of Lightning Elimination Devices to Substations and Power Lines” - by Abdul M. Mousa, BC Hydro, IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, Oct 1998.
Read this one if you believe lightning eliminators (static dissipaters) really work.

“Structural Lightning Safety” - NLSI

”Marine Grounding Systems” - by Stan Honey

“Understanding Lightning Protection” - by Bill Laudeman

“Boating And Lightning Protection” - by William J. Becker. Univ of Florida Extension

From Bolt Lightning Protection:
“Elemental Faraday Cage” (FC/LPS)
