STRONG ADVICE: If there's lightening ANYWHERE close enough you can hear thunder, GET OFF THE WATER IMMEDIATELY!! Get away from the beach/shore... I know folks who got caught in thunderstorms, quit fishing and made a run for it in the boat to get off the water. Lightening hit (not sure exactly what), but the guy driving the boat got lit up bad. He was holding the stainless steel steering wheel and it lit him up, burned his hands really bad and stopped his heart. He survived, and still fishes today, but his boat has a plastic steering wheel AND one gray/dark cloud and he's off the water LONG before he hears thunder...
