In regards to Billy's comment, re "cruise every nook and cranny of __________" There is something to be said for a decent size dinghy or kayak or equal that will allow you to "REALLY" get into the nooks and crannys etc. So as mentioned, you moor a bit farther out! No different than when I go to a shopping mall with my dually crewcab pickup. I am not able to park in all the compact slips. Well I could if I took up 4 of them!
While it may look like I am trying to argue. I'm really not, like all things, what is a problem for one, another may shrug and say, "oh well". I would rather have the slightly deeper draft, better sailing rig, and use a dinghy or equal to get to shore, granted a bit farther sometimes, but still, doable!
Bridge heights, like I said earlier, If you want to go somewhere, and the bridge clearance is shorter than the stick. You has some serious issues. Altho being too deep can be an issue to. I do not see that as big an issue, as long as I have a dinghy to use.

I drives me dinghy!
