I suppose so, but charts do give bridge heights and I don't think I would getbtha close to one I couldn't get under. I'm sure the OP now feels the same.

In fact, it never ceases to amaze me how close the top of the mast looks to a bridge that I clear by 70 feet, which I do routinely. I can't imagine how close it must look and feel when you might actually hit.
