I know it's been asked and answered a hundred times, and I know it's weather dependant etc, but if I'm given a slack (Note not low)water time at Yarmouth of 10.20 am, and the boat has an air draft of 7 foot, what would be the latest safe time to cross Breydon please.
I know you can probably cross any time but I'm talking about least chop etc

Thanks

Ian

You will have more than ample clearance at slack water.
Well in excess of 7ft. Its by far the best time to go
through Gt Yarmouth, its mentioned here, there, aye
everywhere, in the Broadcaster and other publications.
It is there for a very good reason. Arriving at the end
of the ebb can be very tricky. Always, when at all
possible, make the passage at Slack Water. A couple of
hours after IF you have the clearance. The guage can be
seen before you reach the two bridges.  There are
videos.

Lower your windscreen!!! Ooops

Methinks you've missed my point folks , but thanks for the answers.
What I want to know, and this isn't explained in any of the videos that I've seen by the way, what is the latest time to cross given a slack water time of 10.20am , is it possible to do it albeit using a drop more motion lotion?provided it's not running a force 10 of course!
(North to south by the way)

Often said in the old Hoseasons and Blakes
handbooks...up to two hours after slack water,
thereafter depends if you have clearance for the two
bridges. 7ft average high water...ish. So 12.20pm ish.

Thanks a lot, I've got an air draft of 7 foot so I can aim for 12 noon and not be breaking my neck to get there.
