Beaching Your Boat With Confidence
So you want to beach your boat and leave again, unscathed? Here is a useful technique for small- and medium-size powerboats.
Nothing beats a day at the beach except perhaps a day at the beach when you arrive by boat. So it’s understandable that many boat owners beach their boat when it’s time to go swimming. But while driving the boat into shore with the outboard or sterndrive trimmed up is the simplest approach, leaving your boat bow to shore presents drawbacks.
Never back toward the beach! It’s dangerous to swimmers and far too easy to bump bottom, damaging the prop and/or sucking sand through the cooling system.
First, it’s easy to get stuck. A falling tide, wind, or waves pushing onshore or even a large wake from a passing boat can easily leave you high and dry, and a quick survey of Internet boating forums shows that’s a common occurrence.
Second, even if that passing wake doesn’t push the boat ashore, it can swamp the boat, riding up and over the transom, which depending on how far up the beach you left your boat may be lower in the water than usual. Even if you deploy a stern anchor to keep the boat from being pushed out of position, you can’t eliminate the possibility of stranding or swamping.
It takes a bit more effort, but anchoring your boat just off the beach, bow out, can prevent these problems and offer easier access to and from the boat via the stern. Follow these steps:
