With our 56.5' clearance we travelled along the ICW
to Fort Lauderdale
. All fixed bridges are 65'. South of Fort Lauderdale
there are a few lower bridges so travelmthere requires popping out and heading down the coast.
If you get a chart book for the area, or something like "Skipper Bob's" it will list all the fixed bridge clearances.
Oh, and recommended clearance depends upon how sure you are of your height. You only need what you are comfortable with. I'd be really nervous with less than 5 feet, but technically you need an inch...
All the bridges (around Florida) have current
height boards on the bridges.
