I have the 19' Bambi, but those ferries are big, and the operators will give you two lanes to use. Depending on the time of day and the length of the ferry line, I perfer the ferry over the causeway, the causeway has some narrow lanes across the bridge and the traffic can be hectic. So take the ferry when the traffic lines are short, enjoy the ride and watch the dolphins, sea gulls and the stream ridding the waves..

Marcus - You can certainly fit your 26' with no issues whatsoever. I have seen massive SOB 5er's going across there as well as tractor trailer rigs. When they load you, they will simply have you take up both lanes on one side. Worst case scenario is that you have to wait until the next ferry if you happen to end up at the end of a line. It's actually kind of a cool ride with the trailer.

As you can see from the photo, our 27' with the Tahoe attached only took up about half the deck on one side. They actually loaded a couple of motorcycles behind us on this trip.
