For the Keys and Bahamas do you feel that a 4'6" is a good combination? We want a boat that can be used often in the Keys and will be a safe good sailing boat if we want to sail up the FL coast. Or do you think we should look at some of the 3' draft with Centerboard options that are out there (not as many as 4" plus)?

We are use to a 2' draft but realize we have given up a lot of sailing ability for a light shallow draft boat. I want to find that "happy median" where we can access those Keys bay areas and still be able to go out in the gulf.
