Re: Caribbean Draft?

We draw 8 ft and have spent 5 yrs in the Caribbean...We miss out whole contries because of our depth, Bahamas and Belize included. The rest of the Caribbean is not a problem and when you are out there in the big blue water 8 ft and 18,000 lbs of lead is very reasuring.

More than 6 ft in the Bahamas is very difficult.

All depend on how important the Bahamas are to the plan.
