Re: Grounding on purpose
And then there's those folks who run aground on a falling tide... and quickly get out the brushes and the buckets and start scrubbing as the boat dries to make it LOOK like they did it on purpose!
When I did my first navigation course, the following was a bit of advise.
WHEN you run aground on Spanish Banks, the first thing you do is take the largest towel you have on board, and cover your transom (and the name of your boat).
