Re: Smallest boat you can live with

Another part of HOW you'll use the boat, is WHERE you'll use it. Two of the best things about my boat are the 46' clearance and 4 1/2' Scheel keel. Which are definite pluses for East Coast/Gulf cruising. Having shoal draft, without a wing or bulb makes ungrounding easier, and with my clearance, I've been able to even get under 45' fixed bridges. One of the things that attracted me to the Ontario is that it was designed for just what I'm doing with her.

Another thing to keep in mind though, it's a lot easier to deal with a little too much boat, than a little too little.
