Does anybody know if a Freeman 22 will pass under Potter Heigham Bridge and if it will does it need the screen taken down?
Thanks

Regards
Colin

Hi Guys

The Freeman 23 is 6ft 10 above the water line so I reckon the 22 is about the same. What is the navigable height of Potter?

many thanks

Regards
Colin

I own a Freeman 23 and with a hard top on I need 6' 8" ( and that is tight.
With your screen down I would think you need 6'.

Best way to confirm height is what I did.
I took mine to Wayford Bridge - where I am moored - and walked it under the bridge on a quiet day then measured everything.

It worked for me.!!

Colin,

If you can lower your screen or anything else to reduce your air-draft for passage under Potter, my advice would be to do it anyway.

You'll find that it makes the lump in your throat on final approach to the bridge just that tiny bit smaller!! Playful Wink

Not sure of the origins of this pic, though I have had
it for years.
It is a Freeman 22 and I am almost certain it is
Potter.
Not sure of the river levels when taken.
Cracking photo though

Many thanks to all.

The boat today passed under Potter Heigham bridge without issue (many thanks to Patrick the pilot). There could have been not much more than 12 inches clearance!

The boat is now tucked up at Whispering Reeds.


Regards
Colin

What was the bridge height reading?
Please.

12" sounds a lot of spare clearance considering the levels of the rivers.
