Bridge clearance inland waters

Hi there,

While Im still looking for a boat to buy, the question of buying it abroad and sail it home obviously came to mind. The question is... How tall can it be?

Where can I find suitable and reliable information regarding bridge clearance along the waterways leading from Germany/Denmark/Poland, towards Prague, Czech Republic?

Thnaking you in advance,

Re: Bridge clearance inland waters

In the USA most commercial navical water bridge's clearance is 65 ft so that barges and tugboats can clear unless the bridge opens. Check commercial water traffic in your area and see what they're clearance's are.
