2.35 meters here. I wouldn't want to sail in Florida
or the Bahamas with my present boat, and the draft does restrict sometimes where you can go, but you get used to it. Around the UK and Northern France
, the restrictions mainly relate to creek crawling or really small harbors.
I wouldn't trade
my boat for the shoal keel
version and give up even 3 degrees of pointing ability, just to somewhat reduce those restrictions -- another way to answer your question.
