... Safe boating week concludes...

The National Weather Service has partnered with the National safe
boating Council to help promote safe boating practices.

... Lightning safety on the open water...

No one thinks they will ever be struck by lightning, but the most
common threat boater's face in thunderstorms is lightning. Each year
100,000 thunderstorms develop across the United States and adjacent
coastal waters.

Lightning can generate a phenomenal amount of heat that can vaporize
water, melt metal, or cause objects to explode. In fact, bolts of
lightning can produce extreme temperatures up to 53,000 degrees
fahrenheit or almost 5 times hotter than the surface of the sun! A
lightning strike to a boat can be catastrophic, especially if it
results in a fire or loss of radio and navigation equipment.

Although you cannot prevent lightning from striking your boat you
can take protective measures to limit the damage. The best things to
do the minute you see lightning or hear thunder: head to shore and
take shelter until the storm passes. If you must weather the storm
out on the water, drop anchor so the boat's Bow points into the
wind. If your boat has a cabin, stay inside and avoid touching metal
or electrical devices. If your boat doesn't have a cabin, stay as
low as you can in the boat.

At all times, but especially during thunderstorms, make sure you and
your crew are wearing life jackets. To protect your boat, make sure
it is grounded. Use a good conductive material to allow the current
to travel through and off the boat through a discharge plate or the
keel. Another way to minimize the chance of a lightning strike is to
install a static dissipater. Even though you cannot stop lightning
from striking, you can take measures to protect or minimize damage
to yourself and your crew.

Remember that boating safety begins ashore with planning and
training. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio all hazards for the latest
forecast and observation information before setting sail. On the
open waters, set your radio frequency to the NOAA Weather Radio all
hazards for alerts on sudden severe storms that might cross your
path. Be prepared, not sorry.
