** Lightning on the Water**
The correct answer is A. Head for the launch ramp at full speed and don't linger in the boat at water's edge. Hopefully, you'll outrun the approaching storm. Avoid things that conduct electricity-water, power lines, plumbing, metal fences, etc. Don't hide under tall trees. Avoid open spaces. The safest place is an enclosed building, but if you can't reach a building, get into a metal-topped vehicle (not a convertible). A vehicle offers protection because the lightning travels around the metal frame to the ground-not because of the rubber tires. If there's no building or car, crouch in a ditch or low ground among clumps of short cover.
