Thanks to all!
We weren't grounded hard. My son noticed the helm was not responding, and there we were. We sailed into it, then after the rising tide & jib pulled us out to a slow sail, then I turned the engine on. So, I'm guessing there is some 'stuff' on the prop, which would have been folded when we grounded and then pivoted in the mud as the freeboard caught the wind after we took the sails down. I'll try 4 hours of motor/sailing this weekend, and if still an issue I'll have to pay the diver.
