I'll note that manufacturer specs can lie. I normally figure that the draft is more than what the manufacturer says. Once you load a boat up it sits lower. My boat (83 34' hunter) is ussually listed as having a draft of 4'2" however when I measured it while painting this spring the distance form the waterline stain to the bottom of the boat was 4'8".
