In SF Bay proper, draft isn't too much of an issue. There are a couple of things to hit around the Berkeley circle, and if you're going to the N. Bay, S. Bay, or up to the Delta, then yes, draft becomes a potential limiting issue. In the Bay proper, deep draft will help slogging upwind in an ebb where pointing ability is your friend.
