Driving down the street today I saw this and was glad I had my camera with me. May be an option for those of you wanting to get your boat in a garage that is to short.

You might be a redneck if....................

I'd be lying if I said that the thought had not crossed my mind a time or two.

Never seen that before.
But I do know someone who cut a hole in the back of their garage for an I/O outdrive, then built a little doghouse over it on the outside.

How do you close the door

haha, thats what I was wondering. maybe its one of those doors that you have to pull open from the outside.........
it is a somewhat creative idea I guess......

How do you close the door
Looks like the door is pulled down to the bow and then he has some filler plywood cut to fill in the rest.
Looks like easy pickins for a burgler.

I hate to admit it, but not only have I thought of doing something similar, but......... :cool:

Can you image the fade line this guy must have on his gel coat. The bow has got to be much more faded than the rest of the boat.

Someone in my area has a hole cut in the back of his garage into his basement to allow the wake plate in on his Supra.

Before we bought our MC we had the Dealer bring it over to TEST FIT it into our garage, :banana:

<<Just FITS>> I have enough room to still get behind it but man it sure is fun getting it in there. :dance:

I have to go diagonal. I need to triple check to be sure with the platform off and assuming I got a folding tonge on the trailer, I'm still just a bit too long. If I ever move, one long bay is plenty. Until then, ...

70's connect four commercial?

I'm so sick that the last couple of places I've lived have been based on how the boat will fit inside the garage! :confused:

The best one was when I was married and paid a ton when building a home to add a few feet to the back of the three bay garage to fit my supra and missssssss calculated by about 5".... --and I wonder why I'm no longer married? :rolleyes:

You got it. Connect 4!

I'd say measure twice, cut once. But twice never seems to be enough for me either. My new philosophy is to take my wife to Lowe's with me to buy wood. Once I load the wood onto the cart, I take it over to their massive cutting device. I then leave and she stands their with the wood and measurements. She can get somebody working on that project in 5 minutes whereas it'd take me an hour to get someone to help me.

It looks like a toobin boat.

He should've cut a hole in the back.....even if it would have gone into his living room or dining room.

You can always build a set of shelves over it, or make it into a TV stand........or a Chair.............. :D

Platform through the living room wall!!! Always needed that one or two extra seat! :eek:

I'd go with a bar. Unfortuately, my garage entrance is into a hallway and the boat backs up to a wall adjacent to a half bath so there's no room for a teak shelf.
