Hail Storm...

Hi all,
We here in Sydney had a weird hail storm for about 1/2 hour. It got me thinking about what do live aboards or cruisers do when this happens. Do people just set up their boom tents to repel what they can or do they just sit it out as there isn't much they can do and the boat will manage fine??

Let me know what you all do during a hail storm and what measures are taken to minimize boat damage.
