  • Height/depth figures


    Looking for some close to exact figures for the height of the 28 to

    * waterline to top of hardtop
    * waterline to top of steering wheel on the upper station

    with the boat full of fuel.

    My marina is egregious about hurricane hauling and starts early/charges 15$/foot - its a September money maker for them.

    In any event I have a mooring for my Mako up a 4' deep pond which is guarded by a bridge with 10' 8" clearance at high tide. We have about a foot of tide up here so I get an easy 11' at low tide.

    I'm thinking that if I take the buggy top off and time my entry/egress to the pond to low tide I can sneak under the bridge and have a pretty good hurricane hole.

    There's a place here that sells railcar wheels with a chain as storm anchors; I believe they are either 750 or 1000 pounds. Paired with appropriate chain and a 1" pennant I figure I'll be safer in the pond than on the hardstand in a marina jammed in with 100 other boats.
