Re: bridge deck clearance

Phone and ask the seller/broker - you want more than 6% of LWL as a rule of thumb say 800mm. From the photos of one for sale looks about right but impossible to be accurate. Ask if the dinghy with its outboard can pass under - a rough test.

If its the boat in Batemans Bay then yeah, talk to the broker, he has done plenty of miles at sea on Cats. I also like that Sean Arber did some of the work on her. Excellent shipwright

Re: bridge deck clearance

looking at the pix in the add i would say this boat has quite sufficient bridge deck clearance

generally quite a respectable looking cat, although i would think the vendor would be extremely pleased to actually get $249k for her...

cheers,
