I am often asked so here it all is!
Hope you can make that out, so arch folds down.. easily.. then middle of screen is next highest point at 3.32m above water level when sat lightly loaded in salt water
then if you remove screws ( self tappers from screen 0 you can drop it to 3.10m which is basically the height of the side stainless rails, and those rails are 2.13m apart
critical when looking at tight arched bridges..on canals. you might be able to load the hull down some with water in bilges, but probably only reduce by 2 cm AT MOST..
and she will float slightly lower in fresh water anyway..
(after that you have to take a run up at 20 Knots and make the boat bridge shape!! ! JOKE)
side rails as mentioned above, You can see the seat back and plotter in bracket might have to come off, then these rails are next difficult height to reduce without cutting Stainless work, and very shortly afterwards the GRP dash is only 1 cm or so lower anyway..( on centerline)
