The NJICW can be transited. I believe there's a bridge in AC that has a height problem, but I believe the rest are 55'+. Many have transited with drafts of up to 4.5'. Just be aware of the tides...

In addition to Barnegat as a "no" inlet, add Beach Haven to the list. Local knowledge ONLY.

I did the ICW Starting in New Jersey, comming out at Atlantic city and taking the short cut through Cape May. I just made it under the twin 56' clearance bridges. It was a hunter legend 35 that only drew 4.5' and never did touch bottom until Fl. Forgot what guide I used but it was a loose leaf that you flipped the pages as you went along.
Now I live in St. Croix and cruise the near by islands.
