Well, those numbers aren't precise for several reasons:
1. The ship's decks are curved upward at the ends
2. The ship's height depends on the weight of the cargo

Floor of crow's nest: 83 feet
Floor of the bridge: 61 feet (At the wheel)
Floor of C Deck: 34.5 feet (At the center of the forward well deck)

I think you mean "C Deck" as "Main Deck", it's the most obvious and recognizable deck, and also the lowest deck open to air.

Timed out on first attempt.
Just doing a little arithmetic on distances to the horizon.
Thanks, Samuel and Tim.

My measurements are from looking at the commonly available Olympic blueprints, and just doing a scale on the length of the ship in a graphics program, so numbers are approximate.
