The bonefish in Belize are small as are the tarpon so I would not worry too much about the capacity of the reel as you will probably not get into the backing.

However as nmbrowncom states you need a saltwater reel as saltwater is extremely corrosive and will destroy a reel that is not up to it.
I don't know the normal Battenkill but I know a few people who use the Mid and large arbour reels in the salt with success.
