bridge clearance for a HA-18
« on: December 08, 2018, 05:22:24 PM »
Can anyone tell me the height from the waterline to the top of the mast when the gaff isn't raised for a HA-18? I have a low clearance bridge I would like to make it under without lowering the entire mast and am wondering if the HA18 would fit if I simply lowered the gaff. Thanks!

Sailboat data.com tends to be a useful source for basic model data.  The Herreshoff America is here:

https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/herreshoff-america

It does not include clearance information. 

Does anyone have this data to help?

Thanks Charles, I looked there but they don't have minimum bridge clearance listed.  I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I even looked through the old sales brochure. It looks like I'm going to have to find someone with an HA18 and measure it myself.  Unfortunately, they are not very common down here in the Florida Panhandle. -david
