Re: *Thinking* about a bigger, better boat

With a difference of 5.5 to 4.5 in draft.....not sure that is worth it! I'd take teh 5.5 too! I have 5.5 in my 28' boat with no real issues. There are afew places here in the salish sea that I would be in trouble, then again, one would be in trouble with less draft if they are not carefull to!

You probably got the better sailing machine, with a few more worries about depth, but probably not enough to really worry about frankly! I'd prefer 6-6.5 on aboat tha size..........

Enjoy the boat!
