Interesting article reporting on the 10 year analysis of light strikes on vessels:

Moored next to a sailboat a few years ago. Its mast got hit in a lightning storm--it fried every wire in his boat. It tripped a couple of GFIs on our boat but caused no damage. Always want a few blowboats around when it's booming.
