YachtPals.com: "The ideal boat for gunkholing is the boat you have, and a boat of nearly any size will work. Paddlers (canoeists and kayakers) also use the term, except they're looking for places to camp, as are those on open sailboats and beach cats, or skiffs, dinghies, rafts, etc. You can go gunkholing in a big, blue water cruiser more places than you can in a weekender, perhaps, but sometimes that weekender will fit in anchorages the cruiser won't (or won't risk). So, in some areas, the smaller (or shallower draft) your boat, the more you have available."
