VooDoo Stick (lightning rod)

The VooDoo Stick fell off the top of the Mast last night. I guess it worked for 22 years, so now we are prone to lightning and St. Elmo's fire. Jupiter likes Elmo cause he is such a nice muppet, and "Elmo knows your name". I don't think I'll put it back up cause it is just VooDoo and Gris Gris. There is not scientific proof that these things work. My mast is grounded to a huge silica-bronze plate on the keel of the boat that should ground a strike, but not really protect all the electronics on the boat. That's why we have Insurance!
