Re: ICW Latest Info

I once went through the San Pablo bridge on my 26' gaff rigger with a very old 9.9 hp outboard. I dropped the jib and left the main up so I could motorsail through. The current was so strong and my engine so weak that I actually tacked once under the bridge to get through. That bridge seemed very narrow that day lol.
Long as you aren't fighting an ebb tide you'll do fine.
