Re: Grounding on purpose

If you are just looking to clean the bottom there is no need to careen or actually ground the boat. When I was in northwest Florida the tide was typically less than 8 inches. When I wanted to clean the bottom without donning the scuba gear and diving at the dock I would anchor fore and aft in 6-7 feet of water grab the snorkel and mask and take my time cleaning and inspecting.
