X2 does not fit in garage?????????

Helpppppp!!!!
I put an offer on a new x2 contingent on fitting in the garage, i have 81 clearance. We brought the boat home and we are at least 3 inches short!!!!!!
The dealer is changing the tires from a 15/70 to a 15/50 and also talking to mastercraft about lowering the tower a bit more, finding a way to cut the stopper. ( the problem is that the tower does not go down enough)

I m listening now, i NEED the boat to fit.
forget about changing the garage, cannot do it.

Suggestions?????????

Wheel skates... it will be a PIA but take travel tires off.... but on blanks rims drop down on to tire skates.

Get 2 hydraulic jacks to make it faster.... tandem trailer or single?

while most x2s come with single axle trailers, I think tandems typically sit a couple of inches lower. I have to take my trailer off the truck hitch, lower the jack all of the way down, then push the boat the rest of the way in. It gives me the extra 2"-3" to allow the front tower legs to clear the garage door.

Storage is out of the question, wheel skates?????? I need to be in and out in five minutes. It,s a single axle.

Why 5 minutes?

I had pics somewhere

What tower do you have??? There are a few tricks on my 2007 to fit One of which is to raise the jack wheel on a homemade ramp that gets my tower legs to clear. Also letting the air out of the tires works. I winch mine in though.

I connect a strap to the ski pole to the port wakeboard rack and disconnect the legs and place a towel on the port side where the gas cap is and remove the seat behind the drivers seat I then slide the tower to the right and put the port leg on the outside of the boat and the starboard leg in the inside of the comparment behind the driver seat.

It's a pain but I've been doing it for 5 years but it goes in the garage everytime.

deflate the trailer tires. keep a high power air compressor in the garage to refill when out.

Its is only a days worth of work to raise a garage door header...much easier than all the D*cking around you're talking about doing.
