We're moving to the Washington DC area this spring and with the shallow water in that portion of the Potomac, is my 3.5' draft too big? Curious what boats (and what drafts) local sailors have. I'd hate to have to sell my boat but I also don't want to be constant worry of getting stuck. Any advice is appreciated.

Don't forget to consider the Chesapeake Bay as a place to store your boat and sail around. Many Washington area residents keep their boat in Deale, MD to take advantage of the expanded sailing area and cruising destinations afforded by that area. It's about 45 minutes driving time that opens up a bigger world.

yea, 45 min by car but hours by boat, can be a real time saver. As long as you don't want to live aboard.
