You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

captchetco is on a distinguished road
Some friends of mine had a "Shearwater 41" in a slip which allowed the keel to dip into the mud on extreme tides. This situation existed about 2 years. On a haul out, we discovered the bolt-on keel was loostening from the hull. We had to drop the keel far enough to remove all the old sealant, and replace it, jack the keel back into place, and refair the joint.. If it had been done proffessionally, it would have been about a $10,000 repair bill. We spent a week in the yard.

Your post regarding the tide being unusually low probably holds your answer. if it doesn't usually get that low, you likely won't have any problems. You can get pretty specific tidal information for any place from sites like
www.tidesonline.com . (there are others if you google) Perhaps you could arrange to be somewhere else when the tide will be particularly low? The slip we keep the big motoryacht on work on in has a couple of tides every november/december that put us on the bottom but the rest of the year we rarely come close.
