An addendum to this rule is:
IF you cannot get out of the small boat (ie, too far from land) you should
position yourself as low as possible in the boat, preferably with your entire
body below the line of the boat. DO NOT try to out race the storm to land.
Also when getting out of the water go AT LEAST 100 yards away from the shore.
