Cars safe due to steel roof not tyres.... 100 mm of rubber will not stop lightening 1000v/mm. Lightening is much more than 100,000 volts.....

Stats from Squidoo:

"Around 30-60 people are struck by lightning each year in the UK out of these, 3 are likely to be killed." NB this is not specifically on boats.

Compare this with about 15 killed on the road per DAY.

My conclusion likelihood of being killed on the way to boating is about 1800 times greater than being killed by lightning, so something else NOT to worry about.
