Re: Grounding on purpose

Thanks for all of the extremely helpful information. My boat is a fin keel, but the tides here are only about 1' in most locations, so I think I might give it a shot. I just hopes she'll float off on the high tide!

My main concern was, is it safe to the physical structure of the boat to have the weight on the keel? Based on what I am seeing and reading, it seems to not be uncommon practice, if less common here, so I would gather the answer to be yes.
