what are the lock lenght limits on leeds and liverpool

WW says:

In theory, 62ft length by 14'10" beam.

However, 2 62ft narrowboats may not be able to share a lock, as this assumes a wide boat, and as the cill is curved...!

I have a 60ft narrowboat, and have no problems on the L&L- the only canal that is a tight fit is the Huddersfield Broad, where I have a few inches clearance going down!

What length boat are you looking to take through?
