WI to FL via Mississippi River

My wife and son and I brought our Capri 26 (Jus Limin'')down to Peoria, IL (where we live) from Wilmet, IL via the Chicago Sanitary Canal. You have bridge clearances once past Morris,IL. I''m not sure if there are any facilities in that area where you could raise the mast. In Peoria, Wharf Harbor has the capabilities to raise your mast (call Jack (309)688-4141). I would suggest the purchase of charts for the Illinois River which can be obtained from the Army Corp of Engineers (309) 676-4601. Lots of good information.
Best regards,
Steve Shaffer
