Default 47 vs 42 height in water

anyone have a pic of a 42 parked next to a 47 in the water? I'm trying to determine how much higher the 47 with a low windshield sits.. we have a train bridge to deal with & I only have 12 Inches or so to play with...lol , My buddies Baja .38 Special would not fit .. if its higher then that no deal

I don't have a picture but I do have a 47 and it is considerably taller than a 42; I think the difference is definitely greater than 12".

I believe there is going to be 3 47's at the Boyne Run.

I also believe one (blue) has the lower windshield.

I know it's not what you're looking for but here's my 47 next to an Outerlimits SV 43 which is taller than a 42 Fountain.

That's not a wrap. That's the OL kilo boat that broke the record.
