5"5" draft too much for mid & upper Chessie?
Last year when taking my Beneteau First 38s5 north for the summer, I anchored for the night in Pasadena. You really live in a beautiful place. Anyway, I draw 7' and was able to get in and out without a problem. I don't recall where the tides were though. FWIW...
