Air draft Mainship 34
I am thinking of buying a Mainship 34 Trawler to use in Europe. Part of this use will be on the French Canals where there is a height restriction of 3.5metres (11 feet 4 inches). The only information I can find on this boat is the height with the mast up. It is usual to take the mast, bimini etc down to go through the canals on just about all boats, if necessary modifying the mast in the process. I wonder if anyone has measured the height from the waterline to the top of the flying bridge or if someone would be kind enough to do this for me? I am thinking of buying a 2009 boat.
Finally, has anyone any experience of this type of cruising and if so any tips about the engine or the like.
Appreciate any help
