Beaching A Minuet
Posted: Wed Aug 23, 2017 11:30 am
Came here to Weiss Lake in north Alabama last spring and resigned myself to selling my Chrysler 22 because this lake has seasonal water and in the next week or so the level will drop till there's not enough left to float her at the end of my dock. After a summer of weighing all the options I've decided to find a design that I can beach for the two "winter" months when the cove is not passable instead of hauling the boat and missing the great fall and early spring wind we have here. The lake won't reach full pool till Memorial Day but we can sail with Minuet's shallow draft by March and not have to quit till late October. My question is can we beach a Minuet for 60 to 90 days without incurring damage to the hull?
