Tropiccafe is on a distinguished road
Sailing the ICU and the Chesapeake bay in your perfect boat is just wonderful. A perfect boat is of course never to be had. We are not talking blue water ocean crossing boats to say the least. Buying a heavy and deep draft boat would be a mistake. You need to cross many shallow areas in the ICW and need to manover into and out of slips with tight clearances with the wind and current so a full keel is out. Hunters do offer updated living spaces especially for families and are easy to steer into those tight slips. You will get more boat with a Hunter for the money. Buying new is desireable with the warranty that comes along with the boat for peace of mind.
