CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
We usually have our groundings while gunkholing in the mud and sand of the Southeast US and when "feeling" about for a secluded anchorage over mud or sand. We behave differently when we are on the coast of Maine or among the coral heads and ledges in the Bahamas. In the places where grounding could mean damage we are much more conservative. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
