Let us know how you fair...

Let us know how you fair in your first thunder & lightning storm. The wireless Tack Ticks seem to be very, very, very, sensitive to stray EMI from lightning. I guy at my boat yard watched a tree a 1/4 mile away, on an island, get hit by lightning and when he looked up his Tack Tics were toast. He sent them back for repair and they were NOT covered even though this was clearly not a direct hit. Believe me I'd love to buy a set of Tack Tics but until they build them to with stand 1/4 mile away hits I'm sticking with wired..
