Brian and myself spent quite some time on our moorings
measuring the boat at several different points.
In the film you can see the 2 small poles on the pulpit
rail with the pennants flying.
These 2 points mark the width and height of the highest
part of the boat with everything down, and they are the
top of the hinge points for the arch. I made them specially.
They are within 1" of the true measurements!
The centre pole which is laying flat at the time of filming
is the height of the boat at the centre with the arch and
canopy up.
So yes it was tight!!!! Scared  
I didn't go through the bridge at dead centre as there is
some obstruction hanging down in a couple of places and I
didn't know if they were 'flexible' or HARD!
The reason the film wouldn't show before was to do with
copyright music blocking it in some countries including the UK.
Once removed, it worked.

The older I get...
The better I was....!!

That gauge at Beccles has a tolerance of about 2" according to my center Pennant staff which measures out at 7`0" above water level but don`t quote me lol, one thing that was apparent is the Southern gauges are a lot more accurate than those on the Northern Rivers probably half the average tolerance apart from Wayford which is within about 1/2" of true last time we went through.
