Re: Grounding on purpose

Your keel can likely hold up your boat. Particularly with water doing much of the work. There are threads here about beaching (I've done it). I've also brought a boat into shallow water to clean the bottom. Just be careful not to let her pound on the bottom in waves or wakes as she settles or floats.
