Thx
NINE FEET!???

Hope you enjoy the carribean cuz you sure aint bringing that boat to the keys or Bahamas... And if you ever want to sell it, where would you sell it? Having a boat with that kind of draft would wipe out any buyers that wanted to use it in my neck of the woods.

I guess you know what my answer is. But in full disclosure, I hate 6 feet (what mine is).
