You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

only went aground once. On the 27.
I love my depth finder, its set to 10 feet, I draw about 5.
I heard WAHNT-WAHANT of the warning signal about a second and a half before my soda went to the bow. Soft grounding, no big deal, I hopped over the side, had the cuban throw me my deck broom and prceeded to clean the bottom. After I was done messing around, I went to the bow, put my back into it, and off we went.

The PITA I dock next to had left me a wheel from a dock cart with a little note telling me he'd install it on the keel for 25.00 if I bought the 5200. A real Shecky Green, that one.

I never ran aground excepet on purpose..never.

I was in aboat that ran aground in 1982 but it was the skipper's fault as he was very stubborn and was one of those guys that thinks he knows everything...

We told him there were sandbanks but he insisted he knew the area, which he didn't

How do you run aground?

I don't think you can run aground if your boat is designed to be beachable

Chuckles, here's my gem hard aground/beached, after dragging anchor and the tide going out. I've also been hard aground when I was in a shallow inlet and the tide went out leaving me sitting in muck. You're right though, it's not really the same thing when you're aground in a catamaran. In fact, I sometimes go aground on purpose. If a blow is coming, I'll motor up to shore as close as I can get to a grove of trees. My depth sounder will go haywire. If the water is clear enough, I've looked down and seen a line where my centerboards have sliced through the mud.

That must have taken what, 20 minutes to push it back off the mud bank?
I'll take that any day to running aground on a lowering tide and having the boat fall over on it's side because of the keel.

Running up onto a beach, dropping anchor onto dry sand is about as cool as it gets as long as you remember to do it at low not high tide.
