My boat is a few inches into the boot stripe which gives me about 5 1/2 foot draft. This is in freshwater.
I hadn't thought about the affect of fresh vs. brackish vs. salt water on draft, but I should have. Thanks for the posting. (Information on any PSC model is very welcome in this thread ). My 34 is in fresh water also at the moment.

Beautiful PSC 31s Stevemac and Teejayevans.
