Re: Bridge Clearance_How little is too little....
Put a camera at the top pointed forward. As you get closer, you ought to be able to see the bottom of the bridge. If not, then stop.
The camera and home made boat-balls are on my list. I've bought a few 31 gallon plastic garbage cans. With external marine ply disk on the outside to reinforce the bottom, they ought to work. It's part curiousity and part wanting some ICW possibilities. Our air draft is 66' plus vhf antenna.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
