RL28 help
Hello all, I'm hoping a kind RL28 owner out their can help me. I'm looking at purchasing an RL28 and having it transported to Devonport Tasmania.To get a quote to do this I need to know the height from the ground to the top of the mast.Also I have estimated the overall length of boat and trailer to be 10m and width at 2.5m.Hope someone can help. Thanks

Have you looked at the drawings on this site?

Dumb question.But why the transport Co want to know the height of the mast above the deck? Wont it be lying on the deck? In other words about 8 inches taller than deck level. Cheers

rl 28
Jason Am planning on putting my RL28 back on its (Tinka) trailer over the next 2 weeks - will give you measurements then if not too late. PS - in my experience, cheapest way to freight a trailable to Tas is on the Spirit of Tasmania, with a tow vehicle and you taking a deckchair/cabin - when I checked, this was a lot cheaper than unaccompanied freight Chris

RL28 mast height
Hello Jason my boat shed inside height is 8ft 5ins from floor to main bearer on roof, to get the boat in I put the mast to the starboard side & sit it on the lifelines on some soft packing to decrease overall height,I have reversed the spring shackle plates on the rocker which lowers the trailer & have underslung the axles with 2" lowering spacers between each axle & spring, the boat then has about 2" clearance under the roof beam getting it into the shed I hope this is of some use to you Regards Rob

Thankyou all,particually Chris and Rob.Have found it is much cheaper to transport it on The spirit of Tas. I did not explain myself well as the height needed was from bottom of trailerwheels to mast laying on top of boat which I cannot find on the site (nor would I expect to). Measurements given on shed are most helpfull as I have beenlooking into that also. Thank's again.
