Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

I'm curious about the bridge restriction. If it's a fixed bridge and you're buying a new boat anyway, can't you just find a temporary spot on the other side of the bridge until you're ready to leave? Presumably, if you're taking off to cruise, you need only get to the other side of it once? Seems like an odd thing to base your hull size on. As for draft, as long as you have a dinghy, it sort of doesn't matter.
