I would think that a lot depends upon how far down into the mud the keel sinks at low tide. If it sinks far enough to come in contact with the hull, that would be one thing; if it just dunks a few inches of the keel it would be another. My keel just touches bottom at low tide, and during spring tides it sinks in a few more inches, and I can't get in or out for a good hour or so on either end of the tidal movement.

I have a question for Ianhlnd: Sweet sassymolassy, who is that gal?
