What would you buy for $100,000?
Ahoy Jeff, I sail out of Pine Island and Cape Coral in Charlotte and Lee counties and when I say shallow water I mean when my boat isn''t hard aground listing at a 25 degree angle in it''s slip. The Chesapeake is on average 100 times more usable and your dislike of keel boats with respect to the Chesapeake are absurd. Tankers and submarines passing the Bay bridge ought to tell you something. I would wager a tanker would not visit your mom in Punta Gorda. There was a time when there wasn''t much else but keel boats on the Chesapeake and the innovations of shallow water (skipjack)sailing were reserved for fishing vessels which out of necessity worked oyster bars etc.. My objection was clearly aimed at your lack of perspective in the real world.
