Re: Okeechobee

We have been under that RR bridge. In preparation I measured the mast height by tying a 'tomato stake' in two places to the main halyard tied in a circle and raised stake until my wife at the far end ot the dock with a pair of binoculars said that projected end of the stake was even with the tip of the VHF antenna. I knew the length of the stake. I had tied a 100 ft tape measure to the the bottom of the stake. Doing my sums (stake+tape to boat hook laid across the deck+boat hook to water), I then knew the height of the VHF antenna above the water. A quick look at the internet sites previously mentioned, and I held my breath and motored under the bridge.

Re: Okeechobee

Which keel do you have?

A Cal 33 is stated to have with a deep keel a draft (max): 6.16 ft / 1.88 m but with a Shoal draft: 4.50'.

The Depth of Route 1 [Cross Lake] was listed as 6.75 feet yesterday.

Route 2 is a no go, too shallow.

Need to ascertain your distance from your deck sheerline to the water line to add to your I of 46' and the height of any equipment you may have above the mast.
