Wing Keel- pros and cons

My boat quest goes on as the boat I put money on failed survey. I am more the wiser.

Now, I am looking at a boat that has a wing keel. I live in South Carolina where the max draft we would consider is 5.0''. I have heard concerns about getting off if grounded with a wing keel. Can anyone add any views on this topic in shoal water?

Thanks to all.

Gary
