We are on the hunt for a larger boat to live aboard here on Lake Ontario
and in 2 years, sail her down the canal system to ICW
and out to the Bahamas
for our 1 year off adventure.
We currently have a 3' 10" draft
on our Hunter
306, so we are quite spoiled with the 'no worry' sailing, docking
of our "Andiamo". However as we are searching for our next boat, we are wondering if anyone can advise, "what would you consider the maximum draft
for travelling through our route
and sailing around the Bahamas
We don't want to fall in love with a larger boat with 6' 10" draft for example, only to have grounding issues along the ICW
or be so far moored off the islands.
Any thoughts from experienced cruisers, would be very helpful to us.
