Problems with Bridge Clearance on the ICW - Here Is a Solution

This was sent to me by an acquaintance recently. This is in Vero Beach and the bags hold about 2000 lbs. of water each. For monohulls only.

It's one captain that can do the math.

This was a good post the first time. It doesn't age that well.

We followed this boat down the ICW for a couple of days. Very friendly British-sounding crew on board. The captain would call ahead to bridge tenders that had low-hanging cables the boat had to go under. He would warn them that he had to prepare for a "maneuver" to get under the cables. Word spread down the ICW, and in one small town in South Carolina, the whole village turn out to view the spectacle. Very funny.

West Palm Beach ICW Blue Heron Bridge

The Blue Heron bridge is published on nautical charts and bridge clearance documents to provide 65 ft from MHT clearance. The construction at the east opening provides 65 ft. The construction at the west side, the main channel provides only 63 ft. From mid tide to high tide, boats needing the 65 ft use the east opening.
