It's taken 10 years or so, but today I finally ran aground. Not on mud or sand either. It was a hard grounding fair and square on a coral
bommie. To top it off, I was doing something totally stupid at the time so let's just say karma got me!
Fortunately, it was just after low tide, and right on sunset. Kegdging and towing with the dinghy
managed to get us off. Nearly sunk the dinghy
in the process (chain and anchors are heavy!) Hopefully not too much damage, but no doubt some faring will be needed at next haulout.
Of course I've been copping a horrendous ribbing from the missus.
That is all!
