ICW Blue Heron Bridge Clearence Problem

The West Palm Beach ICW Blue Heron bridge is specified to provide 65 ft clearance at MHT. It is published on nautical charts and USCG bridge clearance documents to provide 65 ft clearance. 65 ft bridge clearance is the "standard" for fixed Atlantic intracoastal bridges. The bridge construction from the east side provides the 65 ft. The construction from the west side, the main channel provides only 63 ft. From mid tide to high tide, sailboats needing the 65 ft need to use the east opening.
