Help! Question before I leave on Wednesday!

Leaving lake Barkley headed to the Ohio River and home to Louisville. I was planning to cross Barkley and take the canal to Kentucky lake and up the Tennessee River.
It was suggested that it would be faster to take the Cumberland River straight up to the Ohio.
I asked a delivery captain about taking my boat, 5 foot draft and 42 foot mast clearance, up the Cumberland. He said yes, but that there MIGHT be an aerial
Clearance issue....
Found a chart online that says one aerial crossing is "66 feet at the regulated high water mark," and "11 feet at normal pool."
That's a typo, right?
Can anybody tell me if I can clear up and down on the Cumberland from Barkley to the Ohio?
Thanks!!

RKO,

Go look at a detailed paper chart for the area of concern. It will list the air draft.

I plan to. There are no charts available near where I live. So I'll have to wait until I arrive at The boat next week.

NOAA site has a chart viewer. You can check on your issue from any computer.
