  I tend to agree with you...

About getting out. I've seen lightning bounce on the water. It can actually skim on the surface and that's scary. I once paddled in with lightning cracking right over us. You just start praying. Supposedly that squat position is supposed to be best once you're out of the boat. I'm very cautious about dark clouds in the summer and don't take chances. I can understand why some may feel more secure sitting in their kayak next to shore with no trees than getting out. Tough call.
