Beaching the vessel is an extreme action and would not be carried out if an alternative action to save the vessel was available. It is an action which is employed to save the hull, with the view to instigating repairs and to re-float at a later time with improved conditions. The ideal conditions for a beaching operation should include all or as many of the following conditions:

(a) A daylight operation.
(b) A gentle slope to the beach at the point of taking the ground.
(c) A rock-free ground area.
(d) Sheltered from prevailing weather.
(e) Current-free and/or non-tidal situation.
(f) Surf free.
(g) Communications into and out of the beach area.
