Re: newport 30 how tall on a trailer?
Assuming 6 foot headroom, probably 1.5 foot hull draft and plus 3.5 feet of keel below that the hull structure and keel will total pretty close to 9.5 feet, if left attached it looks like the pulpit and stanchions will add another 6 inches at least, so you're looking at 10 feet anyway above where ever the keel tip sits on the trailer. That could be a difference of another foot or more depending on the trailer.. So in the end I think the trailer is going to make the difference.
If it's wheel steering the binnacle may add a bit more height yet...
