Shabbat: Moored before Friday

If the ship was moored (anchored to the sea bottom without being connected to dry land) in shallow water before sunset on Friday, you may wade to shore as long as:
  • You don't get your clothes wet, and
  • You dry off your legs before walking on dry land.
You may not carry anything with you.
