I am giving you my opinion. THere are many places you can go with a deep draft boat. Portugal is one (smile). However, you would miss a lot. If you are that stuck on that much space, consider a different boat or get a trawler. I was not being sarcastic. These are of course just my opinions... or should I say the opinion's of someone that has spent many hours on many unchartered sand bars... and that is with 5'4.
