Re: Monohull What to do

Another point to consider is if you intend on using the ICW, or Okeechobee Canal you don't really want a deep draft version of any boat. Cat 30 & 27 come in various configurations, as do most production boats in this size range.
Tall mast, deep keel versions tend to be better sailors but not if they are dragging their keel across the bottom.
Okeechobee Canal will take you through some real FL back country.
