baja 342, Powerquest 380, formula 382?


i would think a 8-9 foot door?.. would somone like to messure for me?
I have a 9 foot tall door and my 32 AT fits easily. My boat is about the same height as a 38 TG.
The windshield on some of the boats you listed may add some height though. I would go with a 10ft high to be safe.
I actually would have done 10 ft on mine, except the location of a beam would not let the door open more than 9' anyway.

100 variables.
Tire size
Wheel size
Torsion or leaf
Lifted truck, tires, wheels
Flat land or hill
Pavement or gravel driveway (you can scoop gravel out of the driveway so the rear truck tires dip low just as the windscreen clears a door).
And different boats sit on different trailers at different angles.

I'm finishing the interior of a 30 x 56 garage now. It's a detached in the back yard on a .35 ac lot.

15 ft walls with two 12w x 14t doors. I figure if I can get it down the highway I can get it in that building!!!!
FWIW: my previous 382 would not have fit under a 9ft door but did clear a 10fter.

Also too, keep in mind that it would be nice to have enough clearance and height, so that when the boat is inside the garage, that you have enough room to climb in/out of the boat and stand up inside it... It would just make it alot easier to enjoy and clean.. and not have to pull it outside to get inside it....

Ya think?

But then you probably already read my reply before I typed it.
