I'm not arguing that they are in the Caribbean sea... Let me put it this way, the "official tourism website of the Caribbean" considers them a destination. Tourism probably being only reason they care to be called Caribbean islands

I wouldn't have thought so, but wiki does too:

Re: Caribbean Draft?

Five feet in the Bahamas is just fine - that is what we have and did not feel limited. You do have to get used to having only a foot to two beneath the keel in some places. Seven feet would be limiting , but it is not as if you can't go there.

Bahamas: VERY limiting!
Virgin Islands: not so much

Re: Caribbean Draft?

We draw 8 ft and have spent 5 yrs in the Caribbean...We miss out whole contries because of our depth, Bahamas and Belize included. The rest of the Caribbean is not a problem and when you are out there in the big blue water 8 ft and 18,000 lbs of lead is very reasuring.

More than 6 ft in the Bahamas is very difficult.

All depend on how important the Bahamas are to the plan.
