Would you run aground on purpose

Interesting topic!

Back in my "flying days" along with developing a good "scan" of the instruments, I was always cognizant of a place to set her down in case of an emergency. (I only had one & that was in a single 206.)

Would I run aground on purpose? You bet!

Like flying, when I'm in my boat & running, I always have a beach in mind to put her on should I seriously hole the boat or be taking on excessive water from some other cause.
