    Scary, as we have sat out a many a storm, in the boat playing cards, oblivious to our surroundings

    I have a 14 ft aluminum jon boat. The first I hear ANY thunder no matter how far, I pack up and head back to the camper. We're always at small lakes so 5 minutes from shore to shore with my little trolling motor, quick enough to get in at its fastest speed.

    I think that's on the back of every guy's mind, when a storm comes rolling in " What If " Ahhhh, It will be ok, I'll just cast a few more times, then I'll head in! Those pic's will make you think differently [:!]

    Hey, chewing gum won't plug that hole [:D]
