I think it depends on how fast you are going when you back it in the garage,don't be shy.

If he is a redneck , the hoa will more likely overlook the trailer tongue sticking through the cutout door due to the fridge and tiolet in the yard.

I'm just an honorary redneck, guilty by association! No used appliances or auto parts in the front yard, yet :-D I think I'll have to just go bring a tape measure with me when some local boats come up for sale... sure would be great to get some feedback from an Outlaw 20' owner though.

We built a little half-height shed extension on the rear of my neighbor's. It gave him 4' in the rear. Planted some evergreens around it and you'd never notice.

I thought you were on the other side of the Ohio River from me.
I thought they only did that sort of thing on this side.

Honestly though - I'd do that if I needed to to fit my boat in. Truth is, that's not an option for my house or boat.

Screw a 20' Baja.....you need a 18' Donzi Classic. A Far superior boat than the 20' Baja....

.
When I was a kid, the US map listed Akron, Ohio as the capital of West Virginia.

When I was little, I used to hear the kids in my grade-school class talking about "going home" during class on Fridays. Hell, I went home every night- I wondered where they were going. Straight South on US 21. "Home".
