Mast height/Draft - What limitations will I have?

Hello all -

Just looked at a Hallberg-Rassy 53 and it's a pretty nice boat. However - the draft is 7'6" and the mast height is 73'6". Right now our plan is to head out of Lake Ontario, go up the St. Lawrence, turn right around Nova Scotia and head down the east coast of the US. Eventually, we'll probably be looking to go to the BVI's and other areas, and then perhaps do a trip through the Panama Canal and onwards around the world.

I'd love to hear people's thoughts about the affect the mast height and draft might have on this trip? I know we'll have many intracoastal issues, but what parts will we still be able to see?

Thanks! Chris
