    You wouldn’t get very far sailing in the Baltic then. Lots of cables and bridges which need passing under, and few boats have the luxury of 10m clearance

    This is the cable that is in our pill, navionics put it at 4.3m but it's actually higher even on big springs I've seen (infact to get 4.3m I would have thought the clubhouse would have been underwater) It's taken two boats out over the years and I believe both were arcs rather then touching the cable. It may be scare tactics but there was talk about anchor chain fusing together and damage to engines electronics.

    Local knowledge is king though, ask if you can.

    I have an airdraft of 12.4 plus antenna 1m and anything lower them 20m HAT gets my full attention.
