Re: The run aground poll

I should say, my husband ran aground! I pointed out the shoal to him well in advance but as we got closer it "looked" ok to him despite what the depth sounder (and charts) indicated, lol. I was down below quickly grabbing some food and when I felt the large bump and came up, he got the stink eye! But, we were in a race and the others that sailed by us haven't let us forget it! We have our badge of shame...
