The boat was struck by lightning in the slip once. Had to melt down some dive weights to refill the hole in the solid lead wing keel and replace all the wiring and most of the rigging.
Freshwater strikes are way worse than saltwater. If it happens while you are sailing the boat, you just need to make sure you aren't touching anything conductive, and then you need to make sure you're the luckiest somebitch in the boat.
