Very interesting!* Does running in shallow water effect performance and economy?

Anyone have any opinions?* JohnP

The times I went aground, the boat stopped moving.* Never noticed any other effect of water depth on boat speed.

The shallower the water, the slower one should*go because of the possibility of a grounding.* So, in that respect, shallower water affects boat speed, at least for prudent mariners.

*Seahorse, how did you get your dinghy (RIB?) to/from water and deck and over the liferails?

*There is an 800lb capacity davit mounted on the port side of the boat. That portion of the rail was also hinged so that I didn't have to lift the dinghy over the height of the rail. (The davit would have done it, however.)

*

This is a photo of a photo of "Bank Shot" upon starting commisioning. All the gear, radar, fish finders, davit, dinghy was added after this photo. I went through all my pictures of the boat but couldn't find any of the port side. Sorry!
