I'm glad I do not sail on the east coast. 8-14' of draft would not be too ig concern if you are in the Puget sound region, west coast US etc. most marinas have 15-20' minimums at low tide. Some a bit lower ie 12, but a lot depends upon where and how low a low tide one has.

If I was really worried about low depth, I would probably look for a CB style, then you can pull the CB up in low depth areas, and still have the deeper draft when down for pointing etc. But that is me vs some of you elsewhere.
