The raw water intake is a few feet behind the keel, so I "should" be protected from sucking up any mud.

I guess I'll make a day of sounding the area before launch day. I may even have the yard manager come with me. I guess I'll commit to a strategy after that.

Funny you should mention the chainsaw thing. The last boat (another 36 footer) I owned was run hard aground and subesequently cut into quarters and shipped off to the dump. Thankfully, this was a couple days AFTER I sold it. I'll be damned it I let that happen to me.

Just a follow up. I waited for a high tide and tried my luck. Touched bottom once, but came out with no issues.

I was wondering how you'd go about this. Thanks for the follow up.

Good to hear.
I often find that tasks I think will be difficult end up being easy and sometimes a task that seems like it should be easy ends up being difficult.
Sounds like this was almost a non-issue.

I have a 5' 10" draft too... This is the cove where I keep my boat;


The only time that I have ever touched bottom was when the helmsperson ran outside of the channel...

People who know me would tell you I tend to grossly over-analyze issues. Based on the chart, I think the cocern may be valid but certainly agree that it turned into a non issue. Would have been interesting leaning the boat though.

Oh well, after a year in the yard, a new engine, new rigging, and a few other things taken care of, I'm just happy to be back in the water. Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions. Hopefully someone can use this as a resource in the future.
