Hutchinson Island Bridge Height (Tapped it)

Anyone else have an issue with the Hutchinson Island bridge height?

We've been down the ICW from Norfolk to Stuart and have gone through numerous bridges that read 62' on the boards. To be fair the manufacturer lists our height at 63' and change.

We went through the Fort Pierce bridge at 62' at 7:30am on Dec 11th and got to the Hutchenson Island bridge at 10am which read just shy of 64'. Lost the anemometer and Davis wind indicator. I went back today, Dec 13th at 12pm (same tide, 1.1') and sure enough the boards read just shy of 64'

Just checking and warning :-)

If you are heading to Nassau say hi!
