"those who say they never have are just not telling the truth "
Hey, Chuck. Some of us have only been sailing twenty years or so, and still can't figure out how to run aground. But if I can borrow *your* keel, I'll be glad to try harder. Ain't gonna say I haven't come close, am gonna say I haven't gone aground yet.

I'll rockhop on request, but my personal preference is never to sail in water that's shallower than masthead height. That way, I can even *roll* the boat without getting stuck on the hard bits.

Give me another ten years or a good reason to try sneaking in someplace, and I'll send you a postcard when I do.
