Lightning and safety at sea
During a recent sailing trip in the Bahamas, we got to dodge numerous lightening storms. While I understand that my Bavaria 37 Crusier is "grounded" for lightning strikes, we naturally try to avoid lighting storm situations if possible.
Once, while anchored, and had the choice to stay and wait out a storm, or get underway to our next destination.
Question: Are you more likely to get a lightning hit while sailing or at anchor? Or does it matter?
