Okeechobee Waterway Tide?

Is there a tide below the locks.....between the locks and Stuart? Charts show 55' bridge clearance and we show 54' fully loaded.

Not much of a tide, naturally it's less the farther you get from the ocean. Charts show bridge clearance at mean high tide anyway. Have you accounted for the RR bridge which I believe has a vertical clearance of 49 feet? Or perhaps you're not going near it, I can't remember the exact location.

Stopping short of the RR Bridge. I have been under the first bridge leaving from Stuart...bent the vhf antenna in half, but missed the tricolor. Just want to be certain because I think we went under near low tide.
