Re: Sailing across the Florida keys

The air draft on the Beneteau 49 was made specifically to be able to do the ICW. I believe I'm a couple feet short of 65'. Are you saying you have done channel 5 and the water is more than adequate for this route with a 7' draft and will clear the bridge? I certainly would be comfortable with some room to spare and depths in taking this route. I'm all for short cuts if they are safe. Thx
