Worst case they would break off as designed. Otherwise they might just bend.

After ignoring the first three red flags, should you get checked for stroke symptoms?

Just kidding. I too have woken at 2am to wade in the water and push the boat off the bottom because I swung over low water. Nothing like the 2am bath!

I'm still do happy I was alone.
Otherwise I'd had the added worry for someone else.
By not having someone to talk to, it made the task on hand simpler.
I also knew from the years of research I did that I had a well designed boat. But it wasn't something I had wanted to test at 0 dark 30

This reminds me of when a blow out tide would occur on the sassafras river in md.

The sailboats in the inside slips would be laying in the mud. We would adjust lines as needed until the water came back. These were mostly shallow draft dagger sailboats.

I cant remember any having gotten damaged by this and this would happen 3-4 times a year when the sun, moon and winds would align a certain way.

I've always looked at running aground as exploring. Before there were al these nice charts we like to use, there were adventurous sailors scraping bottom paint and sometimes worse exploring and surveying the coastal regions for us. As you point out choosing the right kind of boat to do this in huge plus. As far as active stabilizers go the ABT' s that are now available are very reliable. Not sure if you remember seeing this:

I really loved the story as it reminded me of an embarrassing moment I had on a sailboat many moons ago.

Even they are not bulletproof:

That photo is one of the first 68's. The 57 I believe happened in peavine pass. Hit some rocks doing 8 knots on an ebbing tide of 3 plus knots. Tides in that region run 8 or 9 feet so after he came to a stop he had to wait for the next high tide to sail off. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.
