NO. Not without breaking your mast.

Question Bottom of Card Sound has a 65ft fixed bridge (if memory serves).....

I presume you need the top 6 ft. of mast to make it to the Atlantic? What type of vessel?, I presume its a cat if you think your draught is shallow enough to make it inside. The controlling depth below Card Sound is 4.5 feet. I have to ask the question... why would you want to go inside?????

One of the problems of a mast over 65 feet is that you can only go in limited places on the East and Gulf Coasts of the US.
While you can stop along the way...you have no choice but to stay outside in the Hawk channel. You CAN get unnder the Rickenbacker Causeway in Miami if you come up from Key Biscayne...but that is about it.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Seajoy,
We just came through jewfish bridge 3 weeks ago. I think that the chart said that it is 65 feet tall. The water level was 1 foot below the depth marker on the bumpers at the supports, so we had 66 feet, both directions. There is a blue light hanging down about 4 feet from the bottom in the exact center of the channel under the bridge which lowers your clearance right there. We almost cleaned off the top of the mast on the boat we were on.
