guided groundings are now the most common sort.
We've run a ground in most of the best places even with paper charts
Witnessed a now famous grounding in BC in 1965, where-in their keel
was on a rock and the hull
were below the tip of the keel. Skipper
sent wife and son out on the mast
to increase the list while he tugged on the mast with a halyard
tied to his dink.
The boat came off, stood upright in a blink as wife and son supermanned it a hundred feet into the bay. The skiff was pulled out from under him like the proverbial tablecloth from under the dishes then started orbiting the mast with outboard
idling at spreader level. Wet myself then sculled over to render assistance.
