We expect to leave Key West
within the week headed northeastward toward Key Largo
and possibly Miami
for the boat show
in mid Feb. We also want to get to Tampa to pick up some friends in Feb.
Because we have virtually no experience cruising Florida
, I pose this question to the forum: What route
should we take on our sailing catamaran
with a 63' mast
to get from Biscayne Bay or Key Largo
Specific questions to support the above general question:
1. Are the bridges on Card Sound Rd (FL 805A) and Overseas/S. Dixie Highway (U.S. 1/A1A/Fl 5) high enough to get our boat under?
2. If not, can we get through Moser Channel under the Seven Mile Bridge west of Marathon?
3. Is the channel north west of Key Largo through Florida
Bay well marked and easy to follow?
Any and all help will be appreciated
