To help get you thinking if you "Retreat" ever faces this problem. Here's what one couple did

This is a major disaster that can or will strike after you get to your bug-out. What else could or can be done to protect your cabin.

As the Boy Scouts used to say .... "Be Prepared"

I have a similar plan. However getting to a  boat is an anchoring a couple of hundred metres from shore is a dangerous choice. Bush fires move so fast and are so hot you would need to retreat long before the fire got there or you would not have a chance.  Using heavy duty sprinklers hooked to a portable pump is the way to go. It is what the MNR do here in Ontario. Of course you need a lake or decent sized stream at the property for this to work. If there is a chance of forest fires within a few Km range turn on the sprinklers and get the ground cover good and wet. Don't have ant trees too close to the house and if you have spruce or balsam trim the dead branches from the bottom od the tree to a height of at least 1m to prevent laddering. Of course in a raging fire with cresting, as shown in the photo with the article, all bets are off.
