Here in Tampa Bay, for most of the west coast of Florida, especially the Keys, it is "those who have and those who will." The good news is that the bottom is mostly relatively soft sand, so running aground is usually not a big deal. Indeed, it is the fact that the bottom is mostly soft sand (which drifts and moves and forms sandbars in unexpected places) that makes an eventual grounding almost inevitable.
