Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

We are sprightly snowbirds and currently put our smaller boat (22)at the local municipal marina which is very convenient and has very reasonable rates and great facilities (except the bridge!). We have very good friends there with smaller boats whom we sail with and socialize with. Because the Bahamas portion of our winter will be only two months we didn't want to give up the marina we have for the occasional jaunt to the Bahamas. We even thought of keeping the boat we have and chartering in the Bahamas but eight weeks each year would be very expensive and still doesn't allow us a bit bigger boat for local weeklong cruise trips to the Florida keys for example. We really like our friends and they won't be interested in changing to a much more expensive marina which is also lot further away.

We almost called our current boat "Nothing's Simple". I am beginning to wonder how more apt that might have been!
