My boat has a 5' 6" draft and as long as you pay attention to the charts, you will be fine in western Erie. I have had no trouble at any of the islands and their marinas. You do have to be careful if you are approaching South Bass Island (Put-In-Bay) from the southeast. There is a relatively shallow shoal that extends pretty far from the island. Stay in the east of the first marker by Ballast Island and you won't have any trouble.
