1. Is the 28 inch draft
2. Are the props protected?

, any knowledge of actual slow cruise
(less than hull speed

3a. Fast cruise speed and fuel
4. Can the boat be routinely dryed out on the bottom with the tide, that is can ya park it somewhere and have the tide go out and suffer zero damage or weird lean angles?

? Would you consider this a bluewater boat?
6. Opinions on build quality?
