Re: Grounding on purpose

When I was sailing my last boat, a single keeler, I had all the dryout places, where there was a flat bottom alongside a rock face , dry at low tide only, cased out. I was never very far from a place where I could lean her against the rocks, take a halyard to a tree, and dry her out. Never had to do a haulout.
