Re: Tornadoes and boats...
My thoughts (no data; no experience):
From a practical standpoint, tornadoes are so random and unpredictable that there probably isn't a right answer. Welcome to the lottery: run to a building, your boat survives; stay in the boat, the building survives. Obviously, a 'real' storm shelter is a different matter.
Theoretically, a big boat on a solid mooring should be ok (again, this is me just thinking*), but if the twister pulls off the rig, it might pull off the deck. My biggest fear in this situation would be that I could do everything right and the tornado could simply drop a truck on my boat.
Like I said, Welcome to the lottery.
