Re: Keys Weekend Getaway Suggestions?
You can do the backside, but you'll be very, very limited with the 5' draft. We used to do Christmas week every year in our F-27 trimaran, and I'd have her board full down at 5' in the channels and was ok.
You can anchor in Thursday Cove just before the Jewfish Creek channel, you can certainly get to Gilbert's Resort/Steamer's, you can hang out in Blackwater Sound, I think you **maybe** can get in the anchorage behind the Caribbean Club (Sexton Cove). Maybe can get in to Tavernier Creek, but I don't think you can get in at Mangrove Marina.
In a nutshell: Backside, you'd have to watch your tides and the chart quite carefully, but you can probably do it.
