Trip to Bahamas

We are sailing for the Bahamas later this month from south west Florida. We want to go under the bridge at Marathon, but are not sure if we can manage it at low tide. Mast is at 65' and so is the bridge. Has anyone done this with a 65' mast?


We cannot control the strength or the direction of the wind, but we can adjust our sails to meet the challenges in our life

No, never done it down there, but meh thinks the key is low tide and slow speed.....Plus wifey up the mast with a walkie-talkie....: Slow down honey, we ain't gone make it..

Don't ever trust the previous owners measurments on the mast, or the keel, do yer own..Save future groundings and future dismastings..Just measure the stick and the keel..
