Default Dock roof height for 35' or 38' Cig.??

[Question]
What is the height needed for a 35' or 38' TG to clear the roof, while on a lift? I'm looking for two measurements. First being highest point (wind screen?) to surface of water and second from deck (top near bow) to surface of water.

[Overview]
I plan to purchase a 35' or 38' Cigarette. However, I need to modify a dock slip. I'm considering my 10' x 32' slip, install a 12,000 lb, 6-arm, back-in (DD) PolyLift. With this setup, the bow will extend out of the slip a few feet, and be underneath the entry point/roof.

Here at LOTO, the dock & lift receive water action, so I would like to ensure I have enough clearance.

Thanks!

Jamie

There are dozens of Cigs at LOTO on Polylifts. Best to just go measure yourself.

The standard height for a slip is equal to the width: 10 wide x 10 high; My 39 was about 6 feet tall (above the dock) to the windscreen on a poly lift.

Height shouldn't be a problem but a 38 TG with a swim platform will be sticking way the heck out from underneath a 32' slip. Might have to install a blue light on the nose!
