Not to say I would ever want to do this, or suggest that others do instead of going into a good haulout facility; but it can be done in the right conditions. I'm sure it would stir up commotion over environmental concerns if you did this anywhere in California; however.

|KeelHaulin||So scrubbing a painted bottom while the boat is afloat is somehow more environmentally friendly than scrubbing it while the tide is out? I don't think you are going to get out the sander and strip the bottom while a boat is careened; maybe on a tide grid (but that's why tide grids are disappearing).|

I thought they towed it outside the environment after the bow fell off.

Walt is on the right track.
If you want legs, the only commercially available ones I know of are Yacht Cradles - Yacht Legs - Boat Stands - For Sale - The Yacht Leg & Cradle Company . In many areas of substantial tides there are seawalls or docks you can tie up to at high tide that dry out at low tide.
Careening per se means anchoring or otherwise tying up the boat so it settles on its side when the tide goes out. That works best where there is an area of soft bottom where the bottom is relatively flat and dries at low tide.
It all works, recognizing the quite appropriate comments above about environmental impact.
