Re: Fairlee Creek entrance with 6' 3" draft?

Thanks for all the responses. We ended up switching boats to a Catalina 350 with a 4' 6" draft and it's a good thing we did. On the way into Fairlee Creek, we registered less than 4' 6" in several spots, so we definitely would have run aground in the Beneteau with a 6' 3" draft.

The trip went well except for the heat. I was told we hit a high of 108 degrees on Saturday and the only wind we had was constantly at our back. It was very hot all day. We got a little sailing in on Sunday on our back to the marina when we had 8-10 knot winds.

Anyway, thanks for the info.
