Effect of draft on crusing areas
It''s OK for the Chesapeake, but I recommend something less. You''ll do some bumping getting into some creeks and anchorages, so plan on learning techniques for ungrounding yourself. No biggee usually, just so you are prepared.
I recommend looking for a boat drawing no more than 4.5 - 5 feet, with an emphasis on 4.5 ft or less for the Chesapeake. My 2 cents worth at least.
