Do it all the time!

Besides, they say the boat goes faster when the bottom is sanded!

Wax is no good on the bottom! A rough surface won't stick to the water as well as a mirror finish. All you trailer queens that are skeerd to beach just put it back on the trailer and look at it while we take your women to the beach party! Take your skirt off , put some pants on and have some fun , thats what you bought the boat for isn't it?

i gotta agree with the above post. There's a line to be drawn somewhere. Yes, we all want a clean and immaculate boat. But the reason we buy these boats is so that we can take them out and enjoy them. If you are so worried about a little sand, then you may as well put the boat in a temperature controlled glass storage unit where it can only be viewed from a distance.

A sandy beach will not seriously damage your boat if you just use common sense about where and when you do it.

I did massive damage to a brand new 38 footer when beaching on a sand beach and hit a hidden rock. put a scar all the way down the keel approx. 3 feet. After this mishap i purchased thru one of the boating catalogs a "beachie" which is made of rubber and hangs like a landing strip from the bow cleats underneath the boat. acts like a landing strip for the keel and never had any mishaps after my damage weekend. My biggest concern was when you do get scratches deep in the gel from the sand, I had always heard the horror stories of moisture and blistering possibilities. MY .02. hammer
