Cutting off keel!

I recently bought a 25' Yamaha fin keel sailboat and have been sailing in FL to get ready to go to the Bahamas. Question is with the 5'5" draft I have been having trouble touching bottom and I'm considering cutting off maybe 10"-12" from the keel and maybe add a little weight to make up for this. Good idea? Thanks in advance!
