Thanks to everyone for your input. I'm going to leave well enough alone and just stay out of water that may be questionable. It sounds like there are plenty of places to go in the Bahamas and FL with 5'5" draft and I will want to sell the boat next year and move up once I have learned more. Again THANKS!

Thanks everyone for your input. I am going to leave well enough alone. I'm sure I can just be more careful of where I go in the Bahamas and FL. And I do want to sell the boat in a year or so and move up once I get more experience sailing this boat. I appreciate all the input.

Re: Chopping off your keel. Don't do it. If it really bothers you, see if you can trade with the guy who has the Potter, and then order a new centreboard. You can raise it in the shallows and still beat to windward hen it's down.

Re: The Potter with no Centreboard. Order a new one and put it back in if you are going to sail the boat. It is a really important part. Trust me.
