Just my 2 cents but I personally have never beached any of the MCs I have owned. Between hull abrasion, tines, water pickup and the prop & rudder assembly, I just never felt comfortable with it. I actually decided not to buy a boat when the owner posted several pictures of it beached on this forum. I was buying sight-unseen and it made me nervous seeing it sitting on the running gear on a rocky shore.
I usually anchor the bow facing out and then tie a stern line (something with elasticity) somewhere onshore or anchor it in the sand/dirt - all depends on the wind direction and velocity. I don't lose sleep that way and it's just a short wade out in the morning.
Hope that helps.
