Default Height on trailer

Just curious, how high is your rig sitting on the trailer from the ground?
I have a 25 sea hunt gamefish and am 12’6” from top of my anchor light.

9'8" and that gives me 4" to spare; my garage doors are 10' high.

21 bay boat. 6'8" tall with the windshield/console grab-rail laid down. Had to get under the 7' tall garage door.

I'm in the same boat (no pun intended)
I have only 7' of clearance, but can't really seem to find many boats over 19' that fit under that height - even with grab rails and windshields folded. What boat do you have?

Verified lower than all the bridges between Sturgeon Bay WI and Holland MI. There were some nervous moments.

On my cabin cruiser, I am right at 13'6" to the hardtop. That is on a 10' wide trailer and after removing the radar, FLIR, and mast.

8'8" with bimini folded down (Robalo R247). No hardtops for me, so it slides nicely under my 9' garage door......
