Re: Boy killed by lightning in our anchorage, what would you do?
From Boat US
First, don’t panic; though many boats are struck, the BoatU.S. claim files have few injury claims and only two fatalities over the years (one man was killed as he stepped onto the dock while holding onto a shroud and another had been swimming out to his anchored boat).
This supports you are safer on the boat, especially if you have good grounding system. Just don't try swimming, or holding a shroud and stepping onto a dock.
