Beaching Your Boat

Here’s how to make sure your boat outing  on the beach ends when you want it to end

In last week’s blog, I wrote about the importance of always being aware of tides and currents to avoid beiOKng stuck aground.

I love bringing my boat to the beach and staying for an extended time, but I don’t want to be left high and dry because of an anchoring error or some other mistake.

It is important to know the dos and don’ts of beaching your boat so you are able to enjoy the day without worrying about making adjustments. You also want to be able to get on and off the boat with ease and be able to leave when you want to. (Hint: not getting beached).

Click on the link below for a great article from Boat U.S. that provides an easy technique for beaching small and medium-sized powerboats (as long as your crew is engaged!).

Do you have your own tale about getting your boat grounded, or some other mishap? I’d love to hear your story. Email me at:
