ships - end of the line

A ship reaches her final destination. When a ship is beached, it's met out at sea by the beaching captain and is then sailed a few miles out to sea, turned towards the land, and, at as high a speed as possible is driven onto the shore. The closer she ends up to the high water mark, the easier and cheaper she will be to scrap
