You're a busy person, Janice. I didn't realize you're also helping take care of and fix other boats' systems. When I hear something 'struck by lightening' I envision very dramatic looking results (burnt and blown to smithereens), not the more visually subtle damage you encountered. Thanks for sharing this experience, we've all learned from it.
I remember when you started this site and your articles. You have come a long way. Your writing and photography skills are amazing and your ability to present complex subjects in an easy-to-read format is impressive. Thank you for this LIGHTNING treatise. The lessons learned are important. Keep up the good work, please.
I too was surprised. There was no indication until Jesse started digging into the upper helm. As for the alternator, the exterior was fine with zero indication of any issues. I know I learned lots.
Thanks for your encouragement. I appreciate that. J.
Thanks so much for being along for this journey that began back in 2013. I appreciate that. I've been fortunate in that a J-School graduate has offered insight to make the website better. I really like that. It has helped.
In the meantime sir, thank you for being a reader, and for your comments. Both are appreciated. J.
