Question C&C 32 question

Seems silly, but I cannot find the height of my mast. This is important to us since there is a bridge that we need to go under come the fall season that has a high-tide clearance of 49 feet. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, are there any internet resources for the full specs on my boat?

You can always use a tape measure and work it out.

How hard is it to run the halyard from the main with a down haul (messenger) so you don't sky the halyard , figure waterline to the deck and than add? Of course VHF (which is flexible) should not count.

Go at low tide!

My 32 has a 45 foot mast height plus another three for the VHF antenna which is fiberglass and not flexible. I also have expensive windex sending units up there. I would avoid that bridge if at all possible. It might help to have someone up on the bridge with a handheld VHF or cell phone if you must go under it. I'm in Portland OR. and the nickname for this place is "bridgetown".
