Carver 355 bridge clearance

Postby Boathooked » July 1st, 2014, 3:31 pm

Does anyone know the bridge clearance for a 1998 Carver 355 with radar arch? I do have a radar so I will be adding that to the arch height. I have seen 17'6" as the bridge clearance, but I have also see 15', not sure what is right.

I am looking to take my boat up river and have a few bridges to get under so obviously this is critical.

I had the same question for my 456.
I suggest you do as I did , get a helper on the dock, climb up on the roof,
I then took a tape measure and fed it down to my dock assistant who, held the tape to the water.
In my case , my Total height from steaming light to waterline = 17' 6".
I may have to alter my Steaming light mast.
I hope this helps you.

Thanks Victor. I am thinking I am going to have to do the same, was just hoping to save the effort if at all possible.

I had a '96, and if I recall correctly, it is 15' 5" to the top of the arch

I have a radar on top of the arch of my 355 and I use 18' as my limit.
