fcsob, It sounds like your 414 and my 413 have the same height. Without unsuall tides, I've always cleared the 55' bridges from the one to Goodland at Marco Island to the Cape May Canal in New Jersey. If there is an arc making the center of the bridge span higher then the standard is to have the clearance guage post the lowest clearance at the side, so maybe the 52.5 was accurate by that method. Is the 414 ketch a walkthrough? - mine's not, but I love the bigger engine room space. Of course everything's a compromise on a boat!
