I would say that 6'-6" to 7'-0" is a practical limit. After that there are a whole bunch of places that you can't get into. I ended up with 6'-4" draft and that has worked quite well. I have also raced and cruised on a boat with 8 Foot draft and that hasn't been a deal breaker but it certainly less than ideal.
