I was paraphrasing a statement by a Catalac 12M owner who is the original owner of the boat and was at the factory with the Lack family when it was built. I figured he knew what he was talking about. Silly me.

Owners come out with all sorts of boasts when talking about their boats..

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

Everyone has a different perspective on this topic, and it depends a lot on what kind of boat you own, where you cruise, and the kind of "cruising" you do.

In my own case -- these days at least -- I'm sailing a very shallow-draft small cruising catboat (22" with the board up, small diesel inboard with the prop in an aperture) in the Chesapeake Bay and cruising for only a few days at a time. For me, in these circumstances, beaching the boat occasionally makes a whole lot of sense.

99.9% of the beaches in my cruising area are fine sand or soft mud, and all the ones I'm likely to run my bow up on are in well-sheltered spots. The tidal range is minimal. I haul my boat every winter and can easily touch up bottom paint wear.

What's not to like about it for a guy like me?

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

Careening does not require the boat taking the ground. It can be done by running a line (halyard) from the masthead to a tree, anchor, whatever, and running another line from the same side of the hull as the halyard down into the water, under the hull, and off to another anchor, tree, whatever. Winch in the halyard and the boat lays over on her side.

It is very important to do this in protected water only. Waves can really put a strain on things. And you need two of the lines going under the hull to keep it from turning.

This is also very old tech.

my assumption was that you were exagerating for simplicity - i was just clarifying in case others took it as literal.

of course i was not their at the build.......................good luck .

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

THIS IS HOW ITS DONE.

this boat has a CB. Beaching is easy and the bottom can be serviced without ladders. Fringe benefit is you can take it almost anywhere.

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

Nice. Is it quite stable against tipping, without the need for support?

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

I don't know how its kept upright. Perhaps blocks on the far side. Anchor lines from halyards? Maybe the CB is down One thing is clear, it wouldn't matter if it was on its chine.

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

Looks like not a lot of rudder clearance so you would need to pick your spot.
But so easy to do the hull

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

Great option, beaching, in an anchorage where the deep keel boats are being hit by williwaws from random directions and dragging and crashing into each other all night.

Makes splendid viewing (and sound effects) when your keel is retracted and you're tied to a couple of stout trees.

Re: Dumb Question? 'Beaching' vs 'Running Aground'

So is this beaching, running aground or simply some good 3rd world creativity to put your boat up on the hard after your prepare the stands?

None of the above. That's a case of depositing scrap metal!

Even still, that some pretty good driving from my perspective. Don't think I could split the uprights like that.
