Your air draft will not cause you problems at any state of tide, but what you have to bear in mind is that tide. The Bure continues to flow out for about 45 - 60 minutes after slack water, so if you get to GY an hour before slack, you'll be punching a strong tide (and wasting fuel) for the next couple of hours, as you head up the Bure.

Leaving it until an hour after slack water means that you'll be against the tide across Breydon Water (but the flood isn't as strong as in the Bure), and you'll have the benefit of the flood going up the Bure. If you choose this time, be sure to take a wide swing around the yellow post at the entrance to the Bure, so as not to get caught out and be swept towards it as you make the turn.
