The last time I ran aground, wait, I mean the first time, wait, I mean the only time, wait.........what are we talking about?
Well, a few years ago I had my daughter and 7 of her teenage girlfriends aboard. We anchored so they could go swimming, which really means they go floating on rafts and swim noodles out of ear shot of the boat, so they can all talk, while my wife and I make lunch.
Later, I pull the anchor with an offshore breeze, so we're pointed toward shore. I think I will just swing her around, rather than back away. I still recall watching the depth sounder go from 10,9,8,7...... bump....... in a split second. Nothing quite like 8 teenage girls as witnesses. Backed right off, but I wonder if I made facebook?
