Mud stuck to the hull

A mate of mine grounded my 5 ton 28 ft cruiser in 2 feet of mud yesterday - it is now in mooring and I am 600 miles from the boat and wont be visiting for another 3 weeks - so I am thinking there is lots of mud stuck to the bottom of the boat - it is a timber hull - question how do I get the mud off without slipping it and also the boat has a max speed of 8 knots - don' think that will take the mud off in a hurry - any ideas and will the mud damage the hull if left for too long ?? - MVR

Re: Mud stuck to the hull

the mud will not be a problem.
you can always swim beneath or have a diver look.
usually mud doesnt stick to boat in groundings--paint comes off instead.
if boat was sailing fast, then might be other damage.
all can be seen from beneath when diving her bottom. cleaning, inspecting--all that can be done while in water.
