Default Back Bay bridge center console

Does anyone know if a small center console can fit under back Bay Bridge in Wolfeboro? I would like to be able to get into back bay, but also like center consoles for their comfort. If so, any suggestions for s small center console boat that will clear the bridge? Has anyone ever modified a 15' Montauk Whaler or a small Carolina skiff so the windshield and grab rail is low enough to clear and if so, how? Thanks, this is my first post on this forum.

Default Welcome

Sorry I can't help with CC Bridge clearance, but I wanted to say welcome. Always great to have a new member here. I'd call Back Bay Marina. 569-3200.

Default Bridge Clearence

I don't know off hand, but the Bizer Map shows the bridge clearence. Just be careful the water levels do fluctuate you may be able to get in in July/August and end up hitting the bridge in May. Pay close attention and go slow...

I have a 15' Montauk, not modified, and I've been under with no issue.

I have a BW 150 supersport for hardware store/ice cream runs, etc. Clears the bridge with no issues.
