My bad. I was remembering the Cape Cod
canal, the only part we can run. The rest of the ICW
is pretty much 63-65 feet except less passing through Okechobe.
I took the trip vicariously last year while one of my mates helped transport a Cat from Virginia to West Plam. They had SPOT, Cell phone
and occasional internet
. I could "explore" ahead of their path, follow weather
and suggest routs & on-shore excursions and on the water
crab shacks etc. They passed under just fine at 60 ft. but could not make the St Lucie bridges at Port Mayaca.
