Howdy Jim, I've done the ICW several times in my sailboat that drew 5' 3", with no problems. Remember that the 3' 10" is all the way aft, so you can probably beach her if the shoreline slopes decently. Lots of people have done the loop in a sailboat. I've crossed Okeechobee many times in my sailing vessel (Pearson 424). You just have to be good at reading the markers and the water, and DON'T be in a hurry! I think you'd enjoy the 31. Good luck, Ben
