Mostly inshore electrical storms, some pretty bad, no hits. During one storm some crew members reported a hair raising, prickling sensation of static electricity in their skin.
I've been lucky so far. Lightning is quite fickle and unpredictable. Your chances of being struck out on the ocean may actually be lower then when near a land mass because there is so much of nothing but ocean out there. OTOH, your mast may (or may not) attract a strike since there is nothing else taller around.
