Got knocked down in a creek about 100 ft from 3 shores.Was in front of Tides Inn in Carters Creek off Chesapeake Bay in my Hunter 34.I saw a cloud coming up behind me and turned around and headed for a pole to tie up to.Well did not make the pole by about 30 ft and then it hit.No sails up just motoring.Hail,rain and wind could not see 2 feet.Before its over we were blown about 400 ft and into grass.I look up and there is a house about 30 ft from me.Well had to call Boat US and get towed out.Bill was over 1k.Glad I had insurance.
