This is not directly applicable to your question, but my procedure with my strip-built solo canoe is to hop out while the canoe is still afloat and has not hit the shore yet, and then to pick the canoe up to waist height and carry it ashore, thus avoiding the rocks. This only works in relatively warm weather, but that's when I camp anyway. It doesn't seem to hurt my canoe to set it down on rocks as long as it does not move around on them, but I prefer a beach or grass or bushes ideally.
