It's pretty easy but you need to be careful entering the Tickfaw. Maurepas is a pretty shallow lake so staying away from the sides are important. Once in the river, its plenty deep and easy to navigate, except Saturdays during the summer. Plenty of fast boats, jet skis, and large boats w/ bad drivers.

Don't know, but it's way up there, maybe 50-60 feet?

Did you take the flybridge off? I think it looks great as a low profile cruiser.

I like the look better myself . When I first say your avatar I thought it was a custom built main ship .

You can hardly be called a newbie, I like your boat, very similar taste now since you dropped tall masts and large sails. Welcome to the Forum Bill.
