    For careening, yes. You need a large enough tidal range and a smooth beach. It might be helpful to have trees ashore to lead lines from the tops of the masts to to keep the ship upright or to roll it, if necessary, by hauling it down to get at the hull near the keel (depending on the shape of the bottom and the slope of the beach) otherwise you might need do bury a deadman to lead the line to.

    That was a new term to me so Googled it. Thanks for decreasing my enormous sphere of ignorance a wee bit.

    Are the tides used to get her on the beach and on her side? Or copious quantities of Rum ;-)
