Thankfully, that's a club I've yet to join.... touch wood or rock.

We went up to Killarney and back this summer and I monitered 3 different Mayday calls for people abandoning their vessel after hitting rocks. We also witnessed the aftermath of one of the groundings with a large salvage boat towing a 36 ft. powerboat with several gas pumps on the deck pumping water out of the inside to keep it afloat. Funny that all three were large powerboats, although I saw a 36' sailboat last year in the same situation strapped to the side of a barge in Penetang Harbour and another sailboat this year sunk near Byng Inlet.
