Here is the Okeechobee Waterway bridge info, says lowest fixed bridge is 54 ft. Others are 'opening' bridges. Okeechobee Waterway Bridges, Clearances, Schedules and Restrictions Since the boat is new to you, you may feel and actually be safer on Okee--waterway. Your sailing experience and the mechanical/seaworthy condition of the boat may play a part of decision. Of course hurricane season will be in effect. Is the Diesel a Yanmar or a Renault ? If this is your 1st test for the sailboat do what you are most comfortable with. ...Many times you will find other boats going on same trip who want to travel with you. (that time of year may not have much wind)...Hunter 27 and the Renault RC8D engine - SailboatOwners.com Renault info
