Re: Looking for sailboat for bay that dries daily
That's certainly an easier bill to fill, and as you say opens a wide range of possibilities... the boats you referenced would, by and large, be good candidates. It would also free you from the tide schedule as to when you can decide to come and go.
Moorings are yet another maintenance issue, but like most of them, manageable.
