I think you are probably correct. I hugged the pole as instructed by the Harbormaster and made it, white knuckles and all.

If you are referring to the wires next to the Jolly Bridge, just outside the Marco Island Yacht Club (Marco Marina?), they are much higher than 65'. I've been under them with 67.5'. There is a sailboat in that marina with an 85' mast. If someone hit them, they were probably not in the middle span.

Re: Key West to Ft. Myers, end of April

I'm available and time flexible. I'm a working marine mechanic, self employed, and captain. I've spent 20 years sailing the SW coast of Florida so that means I can run aground harder than most people....
