Re: Caribbean Draft?

Five feet in the Bahamas is just fine - that is what we have and did not feel limited. You do have to get used to having only a foot to two beneath the keel in some places. Seven feet would be limiting , but it is not as if you can't go there.

Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
