Re: reducing draft depth ?

I too had considered this while boat shopping. The conclusion that I arrived at, after pestering a bunch of people and companies (like Mars Metals in Toronto) is this:
The best and most cost-effective way to decrease the draft of a used boat, is to buy another boat with a shallower draft.
