LOL .... guys this is the "seamanship" section!!! What has running aground got to do with this?
Personally I've never done it - and I will never do it again!
Because if you are sailing in shore you will run aground more then once. Thus exchanging tales of woe and how we extracted ourselves from them is a learning experience for other people.
Oh! this is something you don't want to do in the PNW and ANE of the USA & Canada.
