Nasty Keel

I have a 6' draft on my 34 Pearson that I bought recently. When I found it, it was sitting on the keel in the mud leaning against the dock. The previous owner told me that only happens at low tide. When I got to see the bottom it looked like I had a wing keel made from barnacles. Try to find a better place!
