in some areas is an optimistic 4 feet. Grounded twice in mud and was pulled off the first time by a passing power boat
and the wind
was kind enough to spin us around and off on the second one. Food
is readily available and there are enough marinas
along the way should you need one. Providing the weather
is nice it is a wonderful trip. Take lots of pictures.
