Samule, you are talking about my old sailing grounds. I lived in Malabar 13 years about 12 years ago. Time flies. While there the wife and I learned to sail and bought a Hunter 25, 1980 ish model. 3 foot 6 draft. I spent a month on her going around Florida to the Dry Totutogas, Lake Ocachobbe and ICW. I still have a picture of her on the wall in my office. Anyway, google Malabar Mariners Association for thier web site since I can't post links yet.
See Captain Bobby or Donald, tell them CaptainMeme sent you, they will know. Captain Bobby taught me three things about boats, Little boat little problems, big boat big problems, 60 Mph to wind is a good thing, and Do you want to work on her or sail her?

I now have a 22 ft Mcgregor on a tralier. I can launch her in 3 foot of water and I am not held hostage by the boat yards.

Fair winds

Jerry aka CaptainMeMe.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
