sailing in a thunderstorm

Fran, true;

I have been in close storms and cells and hurricanes and more. If you are worried, and are a daysailor, do not go out. What do you do when they tell you not to be close to the binnacle and steering equipment when lightning strikes close by and you are 2,000 miles offshore? Steer with your foot or one finger, as I have done?

Fair winds, and hoping you never get hit,
