Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] ICW and mast height

Hey Joel,

Thanks for the advice - likewise Ian. Have to admit boredom was as
much a concern as clearance under the brodges!

Hi David,

Masthead height, not including antenna, is 65' 7" at middle load.
Having
sold many many boats here in Florida that headed North, I can tell
you that
I have never had any client say the I.C.W. was fun on an almost
7' deep,
almost 69' high (with all the antenna) sail boat.

I will pass along the recommendation of one sage client, "save the
I.C.W.
for when you are old and have a trawler. 10% of it is
interesting, 90% of
it is boring, plan on about 70 miles a day, max, and don't EVER
run at
night."

You will not fit under Norfolk, Virginia bridge,

Hope this helps.
