Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!

So, yeah, here's how I picture this, and please let me know of any (constructive) criticism. I'm going to attach a sling-like arrangement to the port gunwale that runs under the keel and is attached to an outrigger. Kind of an arrangement, so as to keep her heeled over to reduce the draft. The water gets about 3 feet deep at high tide, hopefully it will be enough to change her 6 foot draft into a 2.9,?!?! Then it's about 900 yards to serviceable water ...
