I didn't really consider that point... Thanks. But isn't it better for me to have a 5'-5.5' draft for stability that desire on board? Or am I being too conservative about it?
If you want to race then get a deep draft boat. If you are intending to explore some of the great hide aways look for as little draft as possible. You can find plenty of 30 footers with 5 feet of draft, which will get you most places if you watch the tide. But if it were me I would look for less.
