The following is a safe boating message from the National safe
boating Council and the National Weather Service for this year's
safe boating week.

Thunderstorms can be a mariner's worst nightmare. They can develop
quickly and create dangerous wind and wave conditions... and on rare
occasions waterspouts. Thunderstorm associated downpours and
lightning can turn a day's pleasure into a nightmare of distress.

There are no specific warnings or advisories for lightning but all
thunderstorms produce lightning. A lightning strike to a vessel can
be catastrophic especially if it results in a fire or loss of
electronics. If your boat has a cabin then 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.

Boaters should use extra caution when thunderstorm conditions exist
and have a plan of escape. It is strongly recommended you do not
venture out if thunderstorms are a possibility. If you do go out
and recognize thunderstorms are nearby... head to port or safe
shelter as quickly as possible. Ultimately boating safety begins
ashore with planning and training. Remember that thunderstorms
are usually brief so waiting it out is better than riding it out.

This message was brought to you by the National Weather Service and
the National safe boating Council. Visit the National Weather
Service on the web at www.Weather.Gov and the National safe
