How to fit a GB 36 under a bridge lower than the air draft?

Solution: Carry all the crew and heavy equipment as far forward as possible. Try to go under, if not possible add one bucket of water.

Result: Finally you pass the bridge with 4 millimeters tolerance. Yes, that's correct, 4 mm!!

Cumbayera's air draft measured 3,51 meters without flybridge windshield, the highest point being the rudder wheel (when having the gear coupled). By moving the "cargo" to fore you gain 3-5 cm.

Have a look at the video.

Still one has to remember that the flood in central Europe has made those waterways lower than they should be.
