sailhog has a spectacular aura about sailhog has a spectacular aura about
With a draft of 7'6" you would not be able to get into ANY marina on Hilton Head Island at mid-tide or below, and you would have access to only three at mid-to-high tide. That's 50% of each day. Take out night sailing, and you're down to 25% of your daylight hours (on average). The ICW through all of Georgia would be off limits, as would much of southern SC.
