Re: Boat for Pacific Passage - yes or no?

In the case of possible Pacific island gunkholing; and in the area I live there are any number of small uninhabited islands (nice for camping) and archipelagos with strong tidal surges. A 5' draft isn't mandatory, though it seems a plus. On the other hand not a deal-breaker, if I found a deal on a boat with deeper draft. What do you think?

Where do you foresee this being an issue?
