Ok - here's a strange one. Yesterday there were severe t-storms throughout the day and I know for a fact (saw it) that a sail boat a few hundred yards from my boat got struck. I went for a quick session in the morning - everything was fine. Checked on the boat in between storms during the day - everything was fine. We were about to go out for a quick run, but saw one more cloud so decided to wait it out, let it pass, then hopped in the boat, get off the dock and notice the stereo will not play, which is weird cause it was working that morning, but hey - its a boat, stereos go every now and then. Then I grab the board ('07 Byerly) off the rack and notice two corners are delaminating really badly, which they definitely were not that morning - so my question is - was this caused by stray current from the close lightning strikes? I'm pretty sure my boat wasn't struck cause I can see it from my office and was pretty much watching each storm roll through.... Any thoughts or similar experiences?????

I saw a few Byerly boards do this when they first came out. It should be a warranty issue. I doubt it was the lightning.
