You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

sww914, Thanks for the update, but when you are quoting my post #17, you might not have read this question about rocks in post 21 or the answers in posts 26,27 and 29. When you read back through the thread you'll see that my question about the presence of rocks was cleared up long ago. The photo does show the rocks nearby. My question was about the apparent all sand at the grounding location, but others mentioned that the sand is scattered with large rocks and more beneath the shallow water. Of course all this does not discount the best practice of having all the preparation for kedging off quickly. Unfortunately, the owner was not aboard at the time of grounding. Once again, thanks for the photo, but the rock question was answered long ago.

Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Re: Boat Went up on the Beach Last Night

that is horrible,... I dont think I could sit on the beach and watch a back hoe take out my boat
