I didn't think you were. Just thought ya missed how bad it was is all. The first and last time I grounded Oh Joy in the mud IN THE MIDDLE OF A MARKED CHANNEL!, I pushed and backed while spinning from left to right until I dug a trench deep enough to back off. There's times when a 50 HP, a full keel and skeg hung rudder come in handy.
Just wanted to make sure you weren't thinking I was making light of what to Jody.
I remember once in my old boat , running up onto a sand bar in drifting conditions. Didn't know i was even aground for a couple of minutes. T'was a touch embarassing having everyone around me watching as I jiggled myself off. Ah me, the silly things we do.
