Can we make it thru the keys in Channel 5 or Moser Channel?
Do we have to go around Key West
Any suggestions would be helpful.
The bridge over the Moser Channel has a 65ft clearance, so you'll be fine. Just don't think about crossing Florida
Bay in the dark, as it's a veritable minefield of crab pots a lot of the time. I've been through there with my Morgan
462 with a slightly deeper draft
, so no worries on depth
, just follow the channel as much as possible. If you need to break up the trip, you can stop in Boot Key Harbor.
