Lots of times...but I like exploring places.....plus many waters I traverse have limited NAVAIDS or the shoals come past the marked channel sides or sometimes there is less water in the channel than my boat's draft.

If you include the assistance towboat and intentional groundings, too many times to even count.

Its a function of type of hull, bottom composition, state of tide, and speed that should be of concern mostly...not bumping bottom or sliding aground. Control those elements and rarely is it a real issue.
