Does anyone know the keel width at the lower end (bottom)?

The reason I am asking is that a lorry transport company support keel width up to 40 centimeter and I must admit I have never measured the keel before.


Cheers,

From a quick look at a photo of my 341 on its cradle, I reckon the keel width is around 35cm, but my yacht is a shallow draft boat, which I think has a larger bulb on the bottom of the keel than a deep keel version.

A million thanks for your help.
I also believe that a shallow keel is a bit wider compared with the standard keel.
I am now confident that the lorry driver that have a lorry supporting up to 40 cm keel width can be engaged.
