north under the Blue Heron bridge without any issues. There are four bascule bridges between the Lake Worth
and Jupiter inlets, and the ICW there is pretty easy to navigate. I live aboard my Catalina
470 between the two inlets, but due to my air draft of 68ft, and water
draft of 7'10", I have to go all the way up to the St Lucie inlet to safely get out to the ocean.
I see you have a 1982 Beneteau
First 42. I love that boat, used to race
on one out of East Greenwich, RI about 30 years ago, boat named "Panama Red". Good times with great people, they too are sadly no longer with us.
If you're staying in the area, drop me a PM and we can get together and share sailing stories over a beer
, or other beverage of your choice.
