Bridge Clearance_How little is too little....

Obviously when you hit... its to little. There was a newly constructed bridge just up river from where I keep my new boat (Mount Hope Bay which is on the MA/RI border). It has a bridge clearance of 65 feet at average high tide, I calculated the total height from the water height and got 61 feet which includes the wind instrument/antennas aloft.

What is your comfort level?
