looking to take my first intercostal trip from denton n carolina to stuart and then across okeechobee water way any thoughts or suggestions

About 4 feet.

Go with Chris number but in the files it says 38" without being specific to model.

Here, this will give you an idea.

Confusing...My 410 page says 3’ 3”, which tracks with my own measurements. It doesn’t make sense a 47’ would draw an inch less, it’s such a heavier boat. Perhaps it should have read 3’ 8”?  I’ve seen it listed as 38” in CC brochures too, so who knows I guess.

Weight is not the only thing to consider when calculating draft.  It's also how the hull is shaped.  A telephone pole on it's side draws 6 inches, up right it draws 12 feet.

Think of the weight on a work barge that's long and wide and loaded with backhoes and a crane.  It only draws a couple of feet.

The earlier 41's had a slightly deeper keel than the 410's, the listed draft difference was 1" but if you put the two side by side on the hard they look significantly different, could be lower hull shape?

I was up at my boat today and I measured my friends 47 -- 53" from the water line to the bottom of the prop 

That’s right about what mine draws too.

Do you gentlemen feel that a 47 drafts 53 inches can I get threw the inter coastal water way from Edenton North Carolina to Stuart Florida then cut across the canal to okacheebe to fort meyers

Yeah, that’s right around 4 feet, really not that much for a boat this size, you have at least that much in most or all of the ICW. Just watch your depth gauge and slow down when it gets shallow.

Thanks are you familiar with cutting across Florida threw lake okachobee water way and connecting canals can I make it with this draft of 53 inched
