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

Most know..'You havn't sailed the Chesapeake unless one has run aground at least once..'

I think the real question should be: Wing vs. Fin Keel when running aground in the Chessy?? Though keel depth is important..I'd also consider the type of keel as well..

Wing vs Fin Keel
