Although those are shallow draft, I think you'll have trouble getting under any bridges. I imagine windage could be troublesome too.

Yes- higher probability of crossing the ocean too than that "trawler" you had been considering!!
Looks like fun to me!

Good sense of humor= +1 for you.

really though, isn't a hot air ballon and expansion of the sailboat concept taken to another level??? Therefore, the answer remains, sailboat is the best choice of passagemaker for you!
