As another person with experience grounding a wing keel in the soft mud and sand of the Chesapeake, I found a wing keels reputation for being extremely had to unstick very deserved. We hit at a slight heel angle and we were seriously planted. It took a rather large power boat with a line to the halyard to get us out of what would have been a mild grounding on a fin keeler. Sailingdog had that right.
