Angry Re: Running Aground West coast vs East coast

Yes Sir!! in the West Coast of Florida (Sarasota area) I run aground coming in from the ocean to the channel leading to New Pass drawbridge beeing 150 yards from the first marker (just in the middle ob both!) because the tide was very low ...and I was very stupid... The damage was a bend rudder post, cause the waves kept banging my old lady Sabre 38 for 30 minutes, till the tide released me. BoatUS saved me because I the rudder couldnīt turn below the hull. 900 bugs repair ..and a nasty experience.
