I run the wagonwheel area a lot out of an air boat, and would surely never bring a 22ft skeeter bay boat any where near the wheel. Their are so many shallow water areas, and obstructions such as pipes and stumps. My bet would be an inexperienced person of the area would not last 30 minutes in the wheel w/ out beaching your bout, or riping yor lower unit cleen off. About three years ago a man and his son stopped me during duck season and asked if he could run the area in his subaru mud boat, and I tried to explian to him about the dangers. Long story short they didnt last an hour before he ripped the out drive clean out of the boat in a dead end canal, and sank the boat in 1 1/2 of water. the man treaded mud and water for 100+ yards, before any one could see him in the wheel canal, and that person was me on my way back in from fishing. find some one who knows the area real well before attempting to go. Good luck!
