Re: 5"5" draft too much for mid & upper Chessie?

We went and looked at the Bene today, what a lovely boat, it's VERY well kept and attended to. It's in the best condition of any of the boats we have looked at. The owner is a real knowledgeable, nice and easy going person who is only selling the boat due to his wifes a transfer out of state. My Admiral gave the nod but mentioned she liked the Catalina 320 too (a few times). I had to ask her (a few times) what she liked best, she finally admitted the 320. I see advantages and disadvantages in either choice and would be happy with either. The owners presentation and care of the Beneteau 331 does give it the edge in my view BUT I want something the wife can't wait to get down to the marina for. So it looks like the Catalina 320 for us.

BTW here is the link to the Beneteau (Really cool spinnaker).
2000 Catalina 320
1993 Macgregor 26S
1981 Hobie H16
19?? Sol Cat
19?? Penquin
Many, many power boats
