Perhaps you can tell from my avatar and my signature phrase that I am an old hand with winged keels. Your experience, and that of others who have sailed with wings for a long time, serves to reinforce my notion that running aground with a wing is not that big a deal. That doesn't stop a couple of folks from sounding the alarm on here about the dangers of running aground with a wing. They make it sound life or death, which is not the case of course. My point is merely to bring some sanity to the argument, so thanks for the help in doing that.
