Just to clarify a couple of things,
In my original post I stated that
we knew that thunderstorms were a possiblity.
The forecast called for scattered thunder storms. We expected them.
I was not part of the large raft off.
We were anchored on the other side from the large raft off.
But in fact, the 15 or so boats in that raft actually faired the storm fine.
It was the small raft of three power boats that started the whole thing.
We were simply spectators.
I agree, in that situation, if you did not know that storms were approaching, than you must have had your head up your ###.
