Fist time my boat has seen dry land, sort of like a new car, you hate to get that first scratch, so I have been anchoring about a mile away and dingying my way in. You want to have a nice beach for doing this though and watch the boat so you do not go dry.

The main event, there is nothing like shore time, especially a good fire and a juicy smore.
