5'''' vs 6''''4" draft cruising the islands

The Bahamas is where it will be more limiting. Last winter in my boat that draws 5''2" there were many times I was in less than 6'' (and times I was aground), with 6''4" you''d have to play the tide more, or anchor farther out, or skip a few places. Few places you couldn''t go to at all.

P.S. Bahamas charts and guide book for sale
