    The standard container is 8.5 ft. high. Based on the internet photo I have the bridge of the M/V Natalie Schulte at 10 containers from the loaded waterline for a convenient measure of 85 ft. (26 meters). This is in good agreement with the ships posted height. Draft is not a constant and will vary with cargo load, water salinity, and fuel consumption. A 3 meter variation in the 24 meter height will only be a 0.5' plus or minus difference in dip. Not much to worry about.
