55 feet

Comments from fellow cruisers concerning this bridge:

When traveling east bound last April, the clearance on these bridges was shown to be 53 feet. This October, the clearance was 52 feet. With a 52 foot mast, this causes me concern, especially traveling all the way up to the bridge and not be able to procede or having to wait ofr low tide. Isn’t the rated 55 feet at mean high tide? Did I just get there at unusual high tides?
