We beach our boats here on the Missouri river. We pull up slowly
just in case of a hidden log. Just throttle it a little, then we use what we cal "sand anchors" to hold the boat in place. No problem
Elvis was a boater too

Thanks guys...I kind of figured I shouldn't bother so I'll just stick to using the anchor...

AZ...I am trying to stick out one last season with my boat so I didn't want to waste your time, if you happen to still have the sunsation in the winter I will definatly want to take a trip to see it.

Not good idea to have motors running witht he drive trimmed up high. Hard on them there u-joints!
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
