I tricked my SM from Lake Texoma to Galveston TX 8 yrs ago. I'm sorry I don't know the heights, but they used a low-rider truck bed which only had 8-10 inches of clearance from the ground, and removed the hard dodger to get her low enough to go under bridges and wires. They did not remove the safety railings. She came through without a scratch.
I did a physical measurement of the bridge I would need to clear using a helium balloon and string and the measurement would leave 2-3' of clearance. The moon tide is is only 1/2" at this location.
There is another vertical measurement that I need so that I can determine if a SM could be trucked to my shop. It is the fixed total vertical height from the bottom of the keel to the top of the highest fixed structure.
Thanks for your help,

Mast head height of an SM is 65 feet 2 inches. Add the length of the antennas…
