running aground and other mistakes

07 December 2010 | Glorietta Bay
They say there are only two types of sailors...those that have never run aground but will...and those that have run aground...it appears that this dude fits into the latter. It could be argued that this fellow intentionally grounded the boat in order to do some maintenance such as cleaning the bottom, however the first thing you want to do, should you be in this predicament and realize that you will have to wait for the tide to come in to float the boat, is to point the deck away from the incoming tide (it wasn't)...very hard to float a grounded boat if she is full of incoming tide water. Wether intentional or not, if I ever find myself in this position you can bet that I will get out some bottom cleaning tools and at least act like I'm doing maintenance.
On another note....my friend Robert took his young son to the park yesterday....it seems that homey forgot to properly secure his dinghy to the dinghy dock.....and it became a navigational hazard floating around San Diego Bay. Thank God that the Coast Guard were on top of things and were able to retrieve the wayward dinghy, properly secure it to the dock and board BabaYaga for a complete safety check.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
