Moser Channel, just west of Marathon, has a fixed bridge with 65' clear that you should be able to make at low tide depending upon what's sticking up above your mashead (see Chart 11451). You'll have to tip-toe through Florida Bay from Cape Sable a bit but with only 5' of draft, thats not a problem. From the Shark River to the Bridge is about 40 miles which you should be able to do during daylight.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
