It's been at least 15 years since I have been to the chesapeake beach boat ramp. I have read some reports that some boats will not fit under the bridge. With the higher then normal high tides, does anyone know the approximate clearance under the bridge.

Yesterday, with the extreme high tides, clearance was only about 8'. I had about 6" to spare with just my canvas top up.

According to the charts vertical clearance is 10 ft., Bridge clearances are measured from Mean High Tide. Today's high is close to 2 above MHT so you have about 8ft to play with.
