I figure my max on Lake Erie is 5'. There are a number of boats in my marina on Long Point Bay with 6'+ drafts, but they are usually hauling out by Oct. 1 at the lastest because of the usual late season water drop. At 5' I can stay hull wet until the marina locks the gates at the end of October. Also under 5' you don't have to worry about anchorages in the bass islands and pelee island.
