I have a fair amount of experience sailing ~30 foot yachts but at long last have a house with access to a small river, and from that onto the Thames.
So I want to get a small motor boat but am in unfamiliar waters (so to speak...) and would love some advice.
The river is an offshoot of the Wey and it summer I believe it gets down to about 2 feet. I've found a boat I quite like that I think will do the job. But I'm a bit concerned about what will happen in summer when the level is low. The engine is long shadt but I'm not so worried about that as I can always paddle the 200 yards to the Thames. But the keel does seem faily angular;
Do I need to be concerned ?
