I am 54.5 foot air draft, and would like to stay inside, if I can. heading south from
Ft Lauderdale tomorrow.
Forecast for Wednesday is nw winds 11-13 mph. Seas will be flattish on the outside close to shore. Stay in 40 to 60 feet of water and avoid the northbound current.

You have a big boat. No problem. I've sailed that stretch in a Compac 16.

Re: Juli Tuttle Bridge Clearance

I have gone under that bridge with a tad under 55'.

Watch the boat traffic as the no wake is often ignored by many,
Including Miami PD.
