Re: Best small boat for cruising the Bahamas?
I used to have a Cape Dory 25D with a one cylinder Yanmar in it and a roller furler, and a 3 1/2 foot draft.
I never took it to the Bahamas, but I wish I had because it would have been the perfect boat for single-handing there.
Really, the shallower the draft the better as far as getting in the best anchorages, in the Bahamas. With a 3 foot draft or less, you can find good all weather protection in a lot of places.
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
