No wake speed for 35-40 footer

The short version is:

What is the best speed might I use for transiting a canal community and leaving no/minimal wake with a 35-40 foot monohull sailboat?

Background:

We''re looking at property in a canal community in SW Florida and some of the homes are a circuitous 5 nm from open water. That''s too far for me. We rode through at 4.5 kts in a 20 foot runabout leaving more wake than we should have (it was a guided tour). I believe some of the larger sailboats I have been on left little wake at that speed, but it was not information I filed away. I''m trying to estimate how far "in" the property can be and still have less than 20 minutes to the harbor.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Where in SW FL? We live in ft myers

I have found in the canals you can do about 4.5 to 5 kts. I have a 36foot catalina.

Gerry,

The SW Florida spot we''re moving to is called Punta Gorda Isles up in Charlotte Harbor. We just sold our place on Sanibel and are now free to find our future homestead.

Thanks for the info.

Duane
