Full Keel Cruising... legs ?
Jayne and I are soon to be cruisers (Hopefully) I have to retire from work so funds are now available, however, in the search for the ''home'', we have decided on a full, long keel boat.
There are a few things that concern us..
Beaching for scrubbing, painting, repairs, inspections etc..
Going aground (Stability)
For the above 2, do you carry ''legs'' ?? or what do you do ??... I would love the ability to selectively beach without worrying about a lift-out...
Bahamas ??.. we would love to visit the Bahamas some day (we are UK Based).. I keep reading about thin water and shoal draft ''needed'' ??, with a draft of, say, 6 feet... is it possible ?? and practical. ??
