I wouldn't worry TOO much about the draft of a 28-30 foot boat. Generally speaking, most will be under 4'. We had very few issues sailing around the Bahamas (Exumas) with a 6' draft on our 40' boat, and were restricted from very few areas. The Florida Keys would probably be more restrictive than the Bahamas, and only if you want to travel inside the Keys as opposed to outside.
