FWIW don't you have a 8-10 foot tide height there? If so, about half the time you may find enough clearance to squeak under ( maybe skip the masthead fly), or a more modest heel may be needed. Maybe near high tide you'll just need to wait.

I race on a boat with 7 foot draft, low water level in the harbor channel is 5-6 feet, so within an hour or so of low we need to heel the boat as needed. I would say swinging the boom out with two people on the end is good for about 30 degrees.

Certified...in several regards...
