Jesus, that is not really very bad luck? Strikes on boats are common there?

This year in Greece I made acquaintance with a Scottish couple on a cat that had been hit on the beginning of this year. They repaired the boat on Cleopatra marina that is a big marina, not on the water but on land, I mean that’s the place where many sailors leave the boat for winter and they had said that in many years they had only another boat hit by lightning.
