Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ICW and mast height

Ian Shepherd <g4ljf@...>

Hi David,

most of the bridges are now 65' clearance. The SM has an air height of 20M or 65.6167979 ft to be precise. I did risk it and crept under some power cables in the Canaveral barge canal to get to Titusville to watch the shuttle take off. My FM and VHF antennas brushed 3 out of the 4 overhead power cables even at low tide. I certainly would not risk it again, especially with a solid bridge.

Good luck
