In one case you risk your boat...in the other you risk your life and the risk is not small.

True, but I guess that depends on the land and my confidence in my own seamanship.

I didn't mean "tough it out on a lee shore", but more along the lines of "get out of the zone if you have 48 hours warning". A roll of the dice, of course, but were I in the mangrove swamps of Belize, going to sea might preserve both life and boat better than the land option...
