Re: Boy killed by lightning in our anchorage, what would you do?

we sailed thru a lot of that stuff--never but never swim or be in water of any sort in lightning storm. not fresh nor sea water.

we had zero lightning protection, zero hits, and i was nervous of the ss wheel --so i wore rubber everything outerwear....my boat has a wood wheel, no metal plates on mast---no anti lightning attraction devices--is virgin, and we pray a lot. and we have a cat on board....

i ssad about the kid being hit---too many folks think is better on land. actually, it isnt.
