I think is was a Catalina 27 where the owner using local knowledge (wrong) got us stuck.

I was able to to take his lunch hook with line and through it far enough to pull us off.

Actually had to do it twice as the after I pulled him off the first time he insisted on taking the same shortcut.

He was convinced his short cut was right and wanted to try a third time but I objected.
Was getting tired.
