I agree, there is still that possiblity.
and yes, this was an extreme example, but the first thought that came to mind was I would be better off further up the lake at anchor in a bay, than the next thought was.. there are empty mooring cans off our docks, I should have moved the boat to one of those.

BTW, PCP for a more detailed look at what I am referring to, go here...Lake Michigan storm
