Re: Tidal areas-Drying out

Bilge keeler or a cat. There are some cool projects and other systems but having a boat that sails well and can dry out on the leeward side of an island in a storm is a plus.

There are bilge keelers in the US, not many and very few big ones. I don't know of any over 40' in the upper Chesapeake but mine.

What about something like a boat lift?

There is a 22-25 ft rise & fall locally & it gets worse up the Bay of Fundy.
UK & N.Eu have similar.

Re: Tidal areas-Drying out

Drying grids seem to be going the way of the dodo on the East Coast of Oz. There used to be one in Port Stephens (in Fame Cove), and when we first arrived in Auckland Ck., Gladstone, there was one near the water side of the Customs Dock. Gone now. We saw a few in New Zealand, years ago, now. Part of the problem here is that there now are laws to "protect the environment," so that one is no longer encouraged to remove and renew bottom paint where it's convenient. Still, there can be other reasons to want to dry out, and in some areas, little place to do it.
