Dragging will beat the heck out of the hull. But there are times when it is the only way. I guess I would say that if I have a gorgeous kevlar boat with gelcoat I'm going to do everything in my power to avoid dragging it. On the other hand, I do own royalex canoes that I'll admit I treat in the same way you might treat an old pick up truck with 150,000 miles on it. A lot of dragging will cause damage over time and shorten the life of a boat - but sometimes on certain trips and situations I've been known to drag my boats. I plead guilty to that.
