sailing in a thunderstorm

I listen to the weather reports 4 times a day, watch the sky, always have a lookout, everyone always wears pfds but I am not worrried about being struck by lightning. I have been through hundreds of thunderstorms and am much more worried about searoom and loss of visibility than about lightning. If thousands or even hundreds of sailors were being killed each year from lightning I am sure I would feel different.
