Lightning Protection for a Power Boat with No Mast

Please explain in detail the specific steps to take to install a lightning protection system on a power boat to protect the electronics and people aboard. The boat is 26 feet and has no mast.

Also, if you know a good reference manual on marine electronics, please provide the title and any other specifics.

The only step to take when you see/hear lightning on a body of water is to get the H*** off the water.
That's been my protection and the only protection I've knwn in my 35 years of boating.
