I berth and sail in some pretty skinny water. Usually, two hours out of each tide cycle, I'll be "aground"
Due to this challenging feature, I tend to mind the tides carefully.. Thinking I I had it timed right one morning, I ended up softly aground, directly in front of my dock, in the "channel"! Only hadda wait a few minutes. due to forethough on leaving on a rising tide
Did haft a wait to park the boat one day coming in bit late, too.. There's a little 'bump' in the groove I've worn in the bottom of the slip, and I hung up on it coming in. Once again; wait a while, stow the gear, flake the sails and THEN shift the boat to position,
There *was* thatone time last season when in supposedly plenty of water, that we sorta bounced across asand bar next to the channnel Only slowed us a bit!
Luv me sum mud!
Oh! SeaTow Gold is damm'd near mandatory up here. Hope to never need it, tho..
