Smile Re: Mast height restrictions on the ICW

There are a few bridges that boats with tall enough masts should concern themselves with...

The Wilkerson bridge which is a the south end of the Carolina cut the aligator river being at the north end...

We took a friends boat under this one; where all the instruments where cleaned off... Tide dependent except there are claims that there are no tides there.. 1 knot south bound - I went under it with my own boat - height marker read 65' So with this one you need to practice taking your stuff off the top or tilting the mast to get under it; apparently 63' working height.

I don't know this but reported to me that the bridge at the north end of Moorhead City is of concern

The first bridge at south end of Moorhead City - tide dependence - somewhat concerned at the time

Bunch of new bridges built lately.. and lots of other pitfalls depending on when you show up.. after the spots have been dredged or not..

Florida is shallow..
