Re: Think this would work?

To Davidpm,
Thanks for someone getting it. Only suggestion is that with practice you can get yourself floating in about fifteen minutes. Take a pleasant day, with no wind, and practice while at your slip or mooring. After a half hour it will be like tying your shoelaces i.e. second nature.

To JPP
With two feet of draft for a powerboat, of course, assuming the water is not too cold or muddy. Once you get over two feet as with a 26 ft boat a set of poweringfabs might be more convenient. Thanks for the thought.

Re: Think this would work?

To chef2sail,
You are correct. All boats are not the same. The sailingfab will work on most but certainly not all boats, and for many groundings, but not all. I advertise on this site and was told that I am allowed to defend my product. If you notice I respond to threads but do not initiate them. I just want boaters to know about a very useful, new product. Thanks for the input.

Re: Think this would work?

Friend of mine told me of a grounding he had off Belize. Said it was a sandbar and got help from some military types is a powerboat that powered away from the sail boat with a halyard in tow which tilted the keel enough to allow the boat to slide off the sand bar. Interesting.

Age old method for ungrounding. Many years ago I grounded an O'Day 28 on an uncharted sandbar in the Florida Keys. Tried backing off with the engine, which didn't work, then took the anchor out behind and tried to winch ourselves off, which also didn't work. Then took the anchor out to the side, attached it to a halyard, heeled the boat over, and rotated it around and off the sandbar. Same basic principle, just a slightly different application.

Re: Think this would work?

Operative phrase is "age old method". The sailingfab does the same thing, except faster and easier. Kind of like comparing an adding machine versus a calculator. They both work, just at different speeds.
