Doesn't, have anything to do with draft but it came to mind reading about feeling your boat was small.

[red]In my experience you can get by just fine almost anywhere with 6'3" draft.[/red]
As much as I would like to agree with this bob perry person, whom ever he may be.......

6'3" of draft in the 8' pram I had as a learning to sail, oh, built it me self teenager. would probably be a bit more than I needed. The CB with 1.5-2' was plenty for that boat.

So with ALL due respect to this Bob Perry person, again, whom ever he thinks he is.........."IT DEPENDS" is the correct answer, I might need to disCUSS the diaper variety of depends if he is whom I have a feeling he is.......I've been told someone of a boat designer architect type person.......

I had a GREAT day skiing in some wet snow, at least it was figure I can be a bit goofy tonight! make sure ye all watch out for fuzzy womBets. I hear they get scary looking, kinda like a Tasmanian something or other.......


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
