Re: reducing draft depth ?
Just playing devil's advocate, if you have a mass-produced boat that came with both options from the factory (e.g. a Catalina 385), would that make the problem any easier?
(Don't get me wrong... I fully agree with chuckles!)
Swapping the keels even in stock models is usually very difficult and expensive. Even in popular productions models the shoal draft versions often have a different keel root, bolt pattern and structure than the deep draft versions.
Like everyone said, "Fogedabowdit" just but the boat with the draft you need....
