Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Andrew has it.

Margate Bridge to Margate on Absecon Island, the pier in the second photo is where Margate meets Ventnor.
The Longport Bridge is a fixed bridge with 25ft clearance.
Margate Bridge is a bascule bridge.

To get to Margate from Great Egg Harbor Inlet head west to Ocean City under the south end of Ocean Drive Bridge 65ft clearance, then clockwise around the shoal behind the bridge (or if used to the area north end of the bridge), then north under the Longport/Somers Point Bridge 55ft clearance to the ICW channel, then southeast to the north side of the fixed Longport Bridge 25ft clearance, then north to Margate.
Power boats go under the Longport Bridge after entering the inlet saving at least 5 miles.

Don't do this at low tide. Once at Margate better than 10ft at slips 20ft off the bulkhead.
