Texas to Louisville Kentucky
Does anyone know if I can take a 53 ft mast, with a 5 ft draft up the Mississippi, or the Tombigbee, to the Ohio River, and on to Louisville Kentucky without demasting?....any help would be appreciated. :confused:

No info from anyone, or did I post in the wrong place?

If I recall correctly, you can make it up the Tenn-Tom, but can't say about east of Paducah. Here's a great guide book for it though. Here's some more info Tenn-Tom Waterway - Jim Faughn

On further checking, there's some 52' bridges Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Bridges Clearance Table – Horizontal and Vertical

Depending on the time of year, you'd probably be alright as long as it's not during the spring when waters tend to be higher.

Hope you made it by now. Part of the Mississippi was closed.
