Hello all,

I got the Klondike and Argosy study plans and after looking dimensions etc and the height of bridges on some rivers and canals here in Europe, I am thinking that they may stop me sneaking through the inland systems when I feel like it.
I am pondering a takedown pilothouse affair but am also looking at something a tad smaller such as the Yukon.
It says that they can't be lengthened but that the Corinthian can. I am a bit baffled as they seem to be the same hull?

Can anyone shed any light on this?? Also does a takedown pilothouse seem feasible? I think it does. It would only be the top half, leaving the rest as a sort of flybridge temporary thing purely to get under a bridge.

regards

just speculation here but possibly your right that they are the same hull and that the Klondike is already a stretched version of the Argosy and Corinthian so that stretching it longer is no longer possible but shortening it is.
