Re: Route miami to sarasota

The best place is Channel Five (near Long Key) with I believe 65-feet of vertical clearance and then you can take the Yacht Channel north from there though there is just about 6-7 feet of water in some places. I've sailed that route with a 6-foot draft and it is a bit concerning skimming along with just a few inches below your keel at times. Of course you can also go down to Key West and then north offshore from there. Easier, but longer.

Cut thru at Marathon / Moser Channel just south of Marathon. Under the 65' bridge. Its all well marked and deep enough for you mostly 7-9 feet for the first few miles. I just did it.
