Thanks all! Good one, MedSailor. And you can't even see the game room, sauna, and small bowling alley! Honestly though, I was shooting down at her a foot and a half below the dock and probably knocked off some freeboard.

Where are the pictures? This thread has taken a turn that basically demands pictures.

Thanks Dave! I'm hoping not to have to go around Knapps Narrows all the time--we use it frequently to get to the Choptank, our closest stomping grounds. The Narrows itself and even the eastern side isn't the problem, but the west side entrance, from say Red #4 through the next 50 yards, is. I think it will be doable, but maybe not at low tide.

Congrats Tom,

Glad you found a good fit for you and your wife. More room will make a big difference. Now maybe well see you at the Rondevous one of these years.

The 5.5 will only be a problem in the Kent and Knapps Narrows, but they can be circumvented and circumnavigated if necessary. You will have better performance.

Good luck with her.

Don't take offense. It's Brent's way of saying "Congratulations on your new boat!"

You're not going offshore, so why tote around all the extra weight of the heavier older boats?

Yes, Brent, I was going to take into consideration the huge number of Beneteaus and Catalinas that must have broken up and foundered on the Chesapeake in recent years, but somehow these cases have all been kept quiet. I'll take my chances.
