Re: "Right" boat for the ICW and NC gunkholing?

So, thank you all! An interesting conversation. Each of us has different ideas about the ideal ICW/ NC boat, and we can learn from that.

While there is a new spate of Deck Saloon sailboats that achieve some of this, they cost in the hundred's of thousands.

My ideal, now, at my age; includes continued fun sailing, but less physical demands. I know the ICW has restricted draft and I am prone to want to "check out" side creeks and get in tighter than "big" boats, so I want shoal draft. We expect to sit at our saloon table on a rainy day and watch the world when we look up from out book.

So, other than the need for an additional private berth for guest the cheoy Lee Offshrore 28 still ranks #1.

The Nauticat 33 is a contender but is; (in my opinion) too deep a draft.
The Luder's Midshipman seem to fit the requirements but, they do not seem to be available. Others? Your thoughts?
