Re: The balance point

If you can get on some forums based in the UK, you may find out what boats do well careened if you will or not. That is a normal practice in those northern climes. I've seen pics of all kinds of FK boats leaning against docks on the hard! I've also seen a pic of a shoal draft Jeanneau that accidently got dried out, sat on its keel just fine for 8 some odd hrs as the occupants sat and barb-ed some food, drank some wine.....had a jolly good time waiting for the tide to come in.
