That's exactly what concerns me, staying in the boat which most probably is going to catch on fire (as these boats did in St. Juliens Creek) or jump in and swim and risk an electrified water field. I'm hyper cautious about this but, in the event you do contact a high voltage over head I still don't know what I and my crew should do. USCGRET1990 should be speaking from one of the best knowledge bases...
