I got the guy to weld a handle onto it (on the post just below the winch). It's in a balanced location and there's nothing to getting it on and off. QD on the brake line and lighting harness. Easy to do and worth the extra 4" it buys me. My garage is only 20' deep. So I need every inch I can get. But with the platform off the boat, it'll fit.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Sweet! Do you take the boat in & out throughout the season?

I could barely squeeze my boat in my garage but it would be a hassle with a basketball pole in a bad spot. It would be a little trickier than my first post at the beginning of the thread. Not worth it now that I've been spoiled with storage right next to the lake.

It stays put more often these days (sadly). May have to move it to get into the attic at this point. It used to be on the other side at a diagonal (rear right to front left). Made for awkward use of the garage, but the attic was still accessible. It's a trade off, but what isn't with these things.

I'll take a stab here.
a) He lives in TX, so it's got to be a bit grill on wheels
b) he's a pro ping pong player and takes care of his hi-end table
c) Or a big Christmas present that he couldn't get into the attic fast enough.

d) Home Brewery.

Yet another reason to have the boat backed straight in on the other side of the garage.

Looks like a great way to get the trailer to fit in the garage Doug, but kinda challenging to tow to the lake now???

The garage is 26' wide and 32' deep with a pair of 8x8 doors. (I wanted 10s but it didn't happen). What's my options? I saw in another thread someone talking about it but cannot find it. Just got the lights up today, I think I might end up putting 2 more.
Sherwin Williams Macropoxy 646 is a great material. Blows away the big box store stuff.
I've done a few shops now with it and it holds up great.
Prep is the key. Clean and etch the concrete well. 2 coats. Use a 18" roller to speed it up. Paint the gas curbs first.
Get the darkest color possible IMO that matches the color of the dirt around you. Especially if here's a lot of pet traffic with wet muddy feet.
I've only used a med gray color and chickendd out last time makin it dark brown and wished I had gone darker.
With proper prep the only thin that will take it off the floor is something hard enough or heavy enough to actually gouge the concrete.
