I've bought some lake property and am now boat shopping. The water on my property is very shallow (6 in at times) will a deck boat work here?
Even the smallest deckboat or bowrider requires more than 6-inches of draft. You dont want the drive sitting in the mud--or worse, the hull grounding out on stumps or rocks at low water.
You have two options. A flat-bottomed boat like a Carolina Skiff. Or get a boat lift or drive-on floating dock from a company like EZ-Dock. A third option is to moor the boat away from shore in deeper water and use a dinghy to "commute" to the boat.
