Re: Lightning Strikes and The Faraday Cage

i misread.. was referring to the cage thingy.
come to mention, houses don't have the tendency to move a lot, boats mostly do.
So as for probability, the house has a higher rating, especially the ones that are stocked with carbon rods :)

That's a myth though.. Lightning takes the path of least resistance, and where it just hit is usually that 😉

Re: Lightning Strikes and The Faraday Cage

Ok so sit in the middle of the boat. Would touching the hull be a problem? yes. sudden death. no matter where the impact occurs on your faraday's cage. You want the electricity to be lead away the fastest possible way. Lightning will probably hit the highest point of the boat, a thick low resistanc...

Re: Tippet breaking-tropical hot saltwater.

Just got home from the flats. After some serious testing my conclusion is this. The tippet material i used on the previous trip from where my problems started was the issue. Can't pinpoint the date of purchase and/or manufacturing but do know that this was the problem. with the same material; fresh ...

Re: Carrying around a DSLR for fishing?

Personally, i think all camera systems are a compromise compared to the speed, versatilty and quality of a dslr. On the other hand, some mirrorless camera systems do have some great features like the ability to sync at extreme high speeds when working with (off camera) flashes wich could result in d...

Re: Carrying around a DSLR for fishing?

Nice photos, Limpe! I'm assuming the OCF was to the left of the anglers? Did you put it on a tripod and use a light modifier, or was it just a straight flash? Looks great! absolutely, by the time you add up the weight it can get very heavy indeed! Do you use an external battery pack for the flash? ...

Re: Climate Change

Still if we jump back to the core topic, I don’t think that people have been manipulated to disbelieve the reality of climate change. Rather I think that they’ve made a choice. That they then repost lies or manipulated facts to support their opinion, well that is in itself very interesting! I suppo...
