Regarding air draft I had an old friend now gone who was on those P,O liners which ran to Sydney in the sixties, and we were talking about striking the top masts on various ships, One of those ships had to strike her topmast to pass under Sydney Harbor bridge,I did not think it was true and he was getting mixed up so i sent an Email to Sydney Harbor authorities to confirm,they replied it was true and after the incident with the mast there was a plate on the bridge of the vessel concerned stating that she did not fit under the bridge,but I cannot remember the name of her
