Re: Bahama Shoals?

Definitely 6 ft. is the maximum that you want on the Bahamian banks. There are many places there that you scratch over at low tide with a 6ft. depth. Many passes between islands and harbor entrances are at 6ft. ... and that means a few tenths of inches clearance with a 6 ft. draft.
Even with 6 ft draft youre going to be somewhat limited.

7ft probably would exclude you from most 'neat' places.
