The two Amazons must have managed to beach "Amazon" on Wild Cat Island (but they were Amazons of course!).

And unless Dixon’s farm had a wharf or jetty (or a boatshed) two of the Swallows must have been able to beach or tie up "Swallow" when they went to get milk. Swallow with a fixed keel would have been harder to beach than "Amazon" (and "Scarab") with retractable centreboards.
