Q & A

broad beam in foulrifge tunnel

Hi, can anybody advise if it ok to take a broadbeam with fixed wheelhouse through foulridge tunnel? If so any recommendations for protecting the wheelhouse sides? boat width 12ft, air draft 7ft 8ins. I just made it through Rentons Bridge on the Ripon canal recently if that helps. Thanks

I am not entirely sure I could give a definitive answer here- it also depends on the profile of the wheelhouse. A quick chat with the local CRT office might give you a better answer, as they will have a profile gauge of the tunnel and be far more able to give some details.
Sorry about that!
