You shouldn't have any problems. Pick a good weather window and make an overnight the run from Clearwater to Apalachicola. Check on the status of Goverment Cut before you try it. It is pretty bad to shoal up. You can always go around the east end of George Island. From there to Mobile you can stay inside assuming your mast height is less than 50'. There are a lot of nice marinas and great anchorages along the way that you will enjoy. It should be a fun trip.

If you need more information contact me direct @ bob@struct-engr.com.
