I make Bahamas
several times with my 6.6 draft
, with carefull planing and caution you dont have problems, never touch the bottom in Bahamas , with a Cata the options to navigate shallow banks and found remote
increase, if the Keys and Bahamas are going to be your sailing areas goo for the Cata if draft is a worry for you, between 5 and 6 ft draft are fine for Bahamas , im not sure in the Keys, Bahamas are awesome, enjoy!!!
