The ICW from Norfolk, Virginia to Miami, Florida has a mean high water clearance of 65'; therefore 64' or less will suffice. The Julia Tuttle (dyslexic engineered) bridge in Miami is 56', but it's just a 20 mile hop to bypass it outside . The Cape May Canal requires a 55'MHW clearance, but there's a passage available around the Cape. The southern New Jersey ICW is shallow and with 25' vertical clearance, so most everyone is outside from Cape May to at Least Atlantic City and outside again from Manasquan to Sandy Hook. There's much protected passage in New England, but no ICW. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
