I really like that idea! I had read about the maintenance issues though and the door is an over-used 5year old 16ft wide door so I'm concerned about the maintenance hassles...

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.

Yeah...gotta admit that they have been finicky at times, but I'm learning what they 'need' and sometimes it's just a kick in the pants!

btw...we have one of them on a double bay door, but the house is only 2yrs old.

I used some regular bike hooks and a strap. I also ran another strap to the garage door mount for a secondary "fail safe". I hope it will prevent a major injury or damage if the hooks break for some reason.

I'm going to try to attach some photos of my garage. I built the house to accomodate the MC. There's room to upgrade. The drive is straight and about 56 feet long, and the garage is full 46 feet deep and 12 feet wide and 30 feet deep for rest, with an 18 foot door. Shallow entrance into the drive, but I did add 1 inch block spacers between the frame and springs. No prop guard rub now. The shelf and hangers at the back let me hang up suits and vests without climbing in and out. There's also a floor drain and sink.
