Default 290SC or 280 Height on Trailer

What is the height on trailer of a 290SC or 280? Trying to determine if one would fit in a standard height garage, I've got a detached garage that's 40X30ft, but door height is only about 6ft 10in.

It would depend to some degree what trailer it's on?

My 260 on an ameritrail trailer just clears my 8 ft overhead door.

My boat has the bigger windshield on it and 14" tires on the trailer.

I don't think 6" 10" is going to cut it. unless it doesn't have a windshield.

Thanks for posting. I can do without a windshield. There is a nice 30ft Velocity single engine for sale that seems low enough on a trailer to fit a standard height garage, which caused me to post this thread. https://www.boattrader.com/boat/2006...y-vr1-7632167/

I'm also curious if any of these bigger single engine velocity's like the 260, 280, or 30 struggle to get on plane with a boat full of people like some of the 29 fountain single engine boats I've read about.

I have a 280 with stock 496ho, have no issue with getting on plane with passengers.

That is a nice looking boat!

With 800 hp it should get on plane just fine.
