LOL "...has anyone ever hit a bridge?" I was living in Pensacola years ago when a barge hit the bridge going over to Pensacola Beach during the night. The bridge was out for months, and people were commuting by boat - and literally within 12 hours there were tee shirts for sale that said, "I was there when the ship hit the span!" Probably not a good thing from anybody's standpoint to hit a bridge...
I looked at Skipper Bob's "Anchorages along the ICW" for info on the bridge at Bellhaven. He doesn't have any notation about the bridge height being too low, but the chart does show the Wilkerson Bridge (Alligator River at Pungo River) to have a 64' clearance. (I thought all the high rise bridges at least a 63', not 65'?)
