Can anybody advise me on the air drafts for the above boat......for all down and bridge panels up?

Of course, I can measure this....but I need the information quite quickly.

Many thanks,

Len

Sorry Len, I don't remember the boat - not enough grey cells left!  However, I suspect that, in any case the pulpit and pushpit may be later additions.  If the splay on the pulpit is fairly wide then I suspect that the pulpit will be your highest point for Potter Bridge.  If the pulpit goes through the rest will follow.  I'm assuming too that the cockpit sides, screens, etc all fold neatly down/inwards and flat.

My best suggestion would be that you take your lovely boat up to Potter and let the pilots offer her up to the bridge.  This is best done on an ebb tide and preferably on a week day with notice.  It's the only sure way of knowing her current clearance height for the bridge.  

Sorry I haven't been more help.

David

Cannot give exact figures but Baltimore had a slightly higher airdraft than the Glistening Streams but less that Diamond Emblem and was akin to Opal and Silver Emblems.  I'm not quite sure why you are asking but apart from Potter there should be no problem with bridges providing you play the tides and by the look of it take your ensign down.   Playful

Dear Bill,

Thanks for your thoughts. Don Swanton was Ruby Emblem 5 after Baltimore 6.

I have now measured the air drafts....so query over.

Regards,

Len
