Beaching a 40' catamaran on sandbar

Any knowledge would be appreciated.I would like to know how in general on principle how the cats are designed to sit when the tide goes out.on keels and rudders or on keels and front of hulls.
I need to remove the saildrives and seal up the holes while on a sandbar.

Re: Beaching a 40' catamaran on sandbar

This is entirely dependent on your keels. What model of cat are we talking about here?

You'll be fine. Beached my P435 many times to clean bottom, change saildrive seals, change propellers all sorts of things all around the world.

Re: Beaching a 40' catamaran on sandbar

I have aluminium hull and need to beach , at best , every 4 months for a brush and prop service. Have only been caught out once in about 24 beachings, due to weather change. I much prefer sand bars to beaches and often deploy a kedge if in any doubt. Watch out for the "greenie", monster if thinking of using antifoul !

Re: Beaching a 40' catamaran on sandbar

If you are in Florida you are only getting a 2.5 ft. tidal range. A Privilege 39 draws 3.5 feet .with waves and some settling you might not even be able to expose the bottom, if you can, not for very long. Hopefully you are somewhere with a bigger tidal range if you are planning to try this.

I have taken this into consideration and have calculated that the use of diesel fuel in the travel hoist exceeds any environmental damage to the beach. I am of course using the latest environmentally friendly anti-fouling.
