Well there you have it! At 35psi the tyre footpring is only half what it is at 18psi. Little wonder the Jeep got stuck. It's like trying to walk on sand on your tippy toes.

Also, while driving on the hard wet sand might seems safer, it's not. Firstly, if it's low tide and the car has a problem, you’re in deep s***, not to mention you will get salt sprayed up everywhere. Secondly, the area between the hard wet sand and the dry sand is often very soft and the area you are most likely to get bogged. Stick to the dry sand and don't be afraid of dunes but only ever go straight up and straight down them. If the Jeep stalls going up a dune, just roll straight back down and try again, DON’T TURN! The other thing about driving on the dry sand area is that it is just so much more fun as I'm sure others will attest.
..

Thanks for all the excellent info guys..
Time to order the Chief Hooks to have them here ready for when the Jeep arrives..
