Has Anyone Purposefully Beached Their 23?

I saw a picture of a tall ship long ago beached to do work on the hull when the tide went out. I guess that's how they did it back then. But has anyone gone aground on purpose with their boat at the beach? Can you describe the experience?

Simple with a bilge keeler,
just head in when the tide is ebbing till she bumps .
Keep a few revs on till she settles.
I do it all the time at a local cove were theres no rocks.
Always put a stern anvhor out to pull my self into deeper water when the tide returtnes.
Great fror a quiet night or to check the hull.
Safe sailing
