Nearest outlet from Gulf side to Atlantic

around Lower Matecumbe Key for a Manta 40. I apologize if I missed it in a search but I have looked. I don't have any charts of that area. In fact all of mine are in storage at present.

Re: Nearest outlet from Gulf side to Atlantic

ActiveCaptain is a good resource

Me, I'd cross at the Channel Five bridge (65').



There is a bascule bridge at Snake Creek (Islamorada) this is what AC says:

"Phone: 305-664-3637 There are overhead wires across Snake Creek. The Florida Keys Electric Coop has advised that the lowest wire is 75 feet and does not carry power, but disclaims any liability. A local boat with a 71 feet mast is reported to cross successfully. A boater crossed through on a Lagoon 400 catamaran with a 70 foot mast with antennas on July 4th, 2014 and had no issues with overhead power wires or depth (they have a 4 foot draft). Bridge tender responded within seconds to their call and opened on the hour at 10 am."

I seem to recall there can be quite a current running at Snake Creek, which is why I never attempted it.

Well that was easy. Thanks for the bookmark!
