Re: Soft grounding, Do I need to Check?
I would not worry about a soft grounding in any reasonably constructed keel boat, certainly not in your C&C 30 mark I. During her race career, I bounced a sistership over some nasty stuff at speed, with damage limited to a divot in the leading edge of the keel. Her swept-back keel design is very forgiving, the newer high aspects much less so.
