I have a 42 ft aluminium motor
It has a flat bottom and draws only 1ft of water
. I quite often beach the boat as the tide goes out.
I have always been a bit concerned that if the weather
was to change when I am beached, would I be in trouble. ?
However as I only draw 12 inches and I have my anchor
out to sea with the bow pointing out to sea, would I really have a problem.
I would not be getting large waves on a gently sloping beach with a 1ft draft
and as soon as the boat was to lift
i would be winching it out to deeper water
, where I could lower the outboards.
Obviously I will just have to try it but is there something else I should be aware of
