Post pictures of when things went wrong.

This is when my boat broke it's moorings and drifted in on a high tide. Took us 36 hrs to get her afloat again. I changed mooring contractors after that.

how did you get it afloat again. did the high tide right it or did you have to drag it back into the water at all?

The first high tide after the grounding was not "high" enough, all we succeeded in doing was getting her turned around. The next high tide was enough that we were able to motor her off with help from kedging with the anchors.
We would never have tried to drag her back in until rudder was free, as it was the rudder took a bit of a pounding when she first stood upright as wave action kept causing the rudder to hit down on the ground.

Looks like you took the right action.
Pounding is what hurts them.
I hope you can recover damages.

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.

It would have been good to try to recover damages. There were no costs as such and luckily she got through pretty much unscathed I lost 2 days off work having to be there but at the time I was just glad to get her afloat again so I never pursued for any cost recovery.

Here's a pretty good "when tings go wrong" taken from my stern looking forward after Ivan in Grenada!

I was thankful for the strength of my "old shoe" that day!
