My sailing will most likely be day sailing and some overnight cruising on long weekends. I see some older catalina's with with 5'6" draft and wonder if that is acceptable as compared with the more shallow draft boats I have seen at 3to 4 feet?

Buying a boat is confusing enough. I want the stability first and foremost and then want to be able to explore. My area of sail will be the delaware river to the chesapeake.
