Gemini.. perfect for Bahamas, ICW, etc.. have seen many all along the Caribbean chain, wouldn't want a full keel IP anyway, anywhere.

Only caveat is that more than half the Geminis we saw down there looked pretty grossly overloaded, at which point I suspect any performance advantage will begin to dwindle.
