Re: Sailing 201 Quiz

having run aground several times (luckily all mud)... the boom trick, kedging, and if you have a dinghy w/ a motor (and have crew), tie a very long line to one of the halyards and motor the dinghy a beam to pull the boat over even more.... as the keel pops out of the mud.

one thing to be careful of here is which way is the current going? this is why the anchor is important to not let the boat get any worse than it is already...
