I suppose if you're in the thick of lightning syotrm, there's not much you can do about it except to seek shelter where possible. I from lightning capital of the world and we don't take special precaution while at sea. Some people say lightning strikes the tallest structure around. That is not true. It strike whereever and whenever it wants (i.e. if there's a build up of ionisation charges) even when there is no storm. Where I work, lightning often strike a storage tank, but when the surrounding site construction activities changes the terrain, the storage tank seems to see less strike. The "attracter" now is somewhereelse. Btw storage tank wasn't the tallest structure.
