Waves, whether generated from nature or other boats just make it very undesirable to beach a Cat often.
We do dry out often. Just finished spending the best part of a week drying out on every low tide.
Makes it ver easy to service
through-hulls, transducers etc. Going up the rig is much safer when the boat can't move.
We never beach our cat in surf. Never beach it where big powerboats could generate large wakes. Never beach it on rocks. Never on treetops, the sides of buildings, on active volcanoes, mountaintops.... etc etc...
Strange, but I would have thought avoiding beaching in these locations would just be common sense.
