I sent your map to three guys that live on the island just to the south of your rectangle and told them your perameters and this was their replys. The second one lives at the east end of your rectangle you can see his dock
. Proceed at you own risk.
I haven't been in the pass for a few years but my understanding is that the deep passage
is not where the bridge has the most vertical clearance. I wouldn't try it, I don't think you could make it under in the best circumstances and now they got all the stuff hanging down while they work on it.

Sailing into BEAR POINT Marina in Orange Beach Alabama
This guy has a 6.5 foot draft/ 55 ' mast
sailboat and wants to come and go this way. Two of us have already told him it is marginal at best. The area he has marked is where there was shoaling while we were at Perdido pass years ago. Any idea about this area now. In case you need pass words to get in. "Phil Turner" "bonsecour".

this guy needs to cut his mast and keel
if he wants to do this.
