Draft help???

In my search for a shallow draft boat for Florida and Bahamas water I am having a hard time finding a shallow draft 27-30 footer.
I also wonder which boat will sail better to windward a 4'' shoal draft or a keel centerboard combo... I am leaning toward the combination as my areas are pretty shallow.
I wonder though will the boat sail at all without the board down...

Which way is better to acheive my needs and still have a boat that will bo well in heavier conditions as well?

will the keel centerboard boat bewandering all over and be more tender or visa versa?
