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.

5'''' vs 6''''4" draft cruising the islands
Is there a significant advantage in having a 5 ft draft over a 6''4" draft when cruising the islands generally.
I realize that it would be best to be more specific, but I cannot. Would really like to know if 6''4" is just much more limiting than 5 ft for trying to get to most of the places in the BVI, Bahama''s etc.
