We are use to a 2' draft but realize we have given up a lot of sailing ability for a light shallow draft boat. I want to find that "happy median" where we can access those Keys bay areas and still be able to go out in the gulf.
4'6" draft is fine for the Keys and Bahamas I cruised this area extensively with 5' with no problems.

If you want to get into the skinny stuff just make sure you do it on a rising tide.
