I have owned both full keel and swing keel boats and my wife has informed me that I prefer the comfort and security that a full keel provides. For most of the Caribbean depth should not be an issue. I have only been to the Bahamas and there were a few times when I really was glad we only drew about 4 feet. Good luck!
