Bahamas & ICW with 5''''-8"
We''ve sailed the entire east coast and Bahamas for the last 3.5 years aboard our Island Packet 40, Charbonneau. Fully loaded we draw around 5''6" and have never felt cheated out of anchorages because of draft. Play the tides, take your time, and almost all anchorages are available to you that are available to other monohulls. Don''t try and act like a catamaran and you''ll have a great time. I''d worry more about the anchoring gear and techniques you''ll use rather than draft.
