Lake Buccaneers are not normally beached on Hard shores
They are designed to have the gear put down in the water and then driven up to a firm hold.

I watched a guy win $100 betting a super cub pilot he could get onto a smaller sandbar than the cub could.

Now a buccaneer is a really good short field airplane but not near as good as a super cub.
But if you land in the water and put the gear down you can taxi up on a sandbar 25 feet long.

I have seen the lake buccaneer “anchored” by putting the gear down in shallow water.
They seem to be pretty tough.
I’ve seen them takeoff on some fairly rocky and rough air strips
