Perhaps you know the details quite well but just in case

Bridge clearance supposed to be 65' although higher than normal tides can reduce that a foot or so.

Draft is less clear but in general much over 6' you will have to pay close attention in many areas and play the tide to get through.
my comment was directed to the above. I am also looking at other boats with deeper drafts and taller rigs...aka Tayana 48 and Hylas 46.
