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

Just spent a week in the middle Chesapeake Bay with 5' draft. I would call that my maximum comfort zone. The main reason not that you'll run aground but it limits where you can explore and anchor. Although many boats have more than 5' draft I don't think it's a liability I would choose if I had a choice. I see it as a negative more than a deal breaker, but hopefully the Cat 320 has less draft and you can be happy about that.
