I believe you're the second poster who's mentioned a concern about the clearance at Moser Channel, I don't get it...

His rig was configured for the ICW, the clearance of the 7 Mile Bridge is listed as 65'... I just came thru there about 10 days ago on a fairly high tide, and of course my recollection may be a bit faulty on this, but I'm pretty sure the clearance board was still reading a bit over 66' ...

I really don't think that Moser Channel will be a problem for him, as far as air draft goes...
