The western Erie canal is known for a few low vertical clearance fixed bridges. Two of our antennas hit one which had a published clearance of 18 feet. So, before we got to the next one (E93) with a published clearance of 16 feet, we took down some antennas and the radar mast.
We re-took some measurements and we re-confirmed that we require 14.5 feet with the canvas up. The lowest bridge is 15.7 feet.
That wasn’t comforting going under E93, the 16 foot bridge! We may lower the canvas a bit when we get to the lowest bridge.
We simply do not want to damage anything, so we are being extra careful.
