Re: Cross Florida Canal
The "Cross Florida Canal" aka Cross Florida Barge Canal never got completed.
You can transit across Florida via the Okeechobee waterway but the max air draft is 49' I believe. There was a fellow near that bridge who could heel your vessel over using water ballast but I'm not sure how much he could lower your rig.
The US Corps of Engineers will have current info about depth, lock closures, etc.
You can Google search all kinds of info on the route.
