Mast Height on St Lawrence Seaway

I am interested in taking a 80+ sloop into the Great Lakes. I am having little luck with max. mast height going though the St Lawrence. Can anyone give me an idea if this is even possible w/ a mast clearance of 115 ft+. I don't want to unstep the mast due the complexity.
Thanks, Otter

Re: Mast Height on St Lawrence Seaway

The minimum vertical clearance of Seaway bridges in this section is 36.6 meters or 120 feet.

Re: Mast Height on St Lawrence Seaway

You are very close: I have read 35.5 meters in one place and 36.6 meters in another place. I think you will find all the answers here.

I took a 68 footer through, but can't remember the mast height. It was never an issue.
