smurphny When your draft exceeds the water's depth, you are most assuredly aground.

Boasun All boats are testing the depth of the water every time you move her about.... And we pray that we never find out that the water is less than the keel is deep.

Now either put the boat on the hard or dive on her to inspect her underbody very closely.
May you only find that the paint is scratched somewhat....

My boat has one of those. it's seamless near as I can tell. We've run aground a few times but have never hit a rock or log dead on. there are 2 or 3 massive stringers across the small bilge but there is nothing that indicates some sort of mechanical connection. Someday to find out how it's made, I'm going to Call Rudy at D & R. It seems he's last surviving expert and former employee of Oday.

Merit! go sailing! nice up there where your at!

Boat came out in October and the keel was FINE! only a minor chip in front. Yep, the lead attached keel is pretty tough!

This season we will exit the channel SLOWLY!

HUGOSALT Happy to hear only minor chip.
