    We have a 3 stall garage. One double stall which is shorter and a single stall that is a bit longer. When I mentioned the width before as being an issue, I was only thinking about the 3rd single stall which is currently empty. I forgot that the Mondo will fit in all 3 stalls as it is shorter so the width won't be an issue with the double stall. Sorry, I forgot about that before I sent my last post. I was initially getting too excited about the Mojo possibility and too focused on that.

    Yes I am married and I think the Mondo will just be an easier boat to deal with taking into consideration backing it into the garage and storage. I don't want a tight fit and have the kids banging into it all the time either. I am thinking that it will only be in the garage during the boating season and then will be stored elsewhere during the winter. If there seems to be a way to store it in the garage during the winter, we may do that also but we will have to see.

    After taking all of these things into consideration, I think the Mojo is out of the question.

    Once again, thanks everyone for all of the feedback.

    Sounds like an excellent choice and I am sure it will provide years of fun, Most of my boats (and I have had a lot of them) were under 21', only the last four have been 21' or longer. A 20.5' Mondo sounds like a very fun machine!

    Bring that thing to Nor Cal and I'll bring out my boards!! Let's GO!!

    This was more of my point, it's going to be pretty negligible what type of boat you get when you're talking about width now. Even if you go get a similar size I/O I bet the width including the trailer won't be much different.

    Spader, I think you'll be perfectly fine with a 3 car garage...even if your boat took up your entire garage, trust me you'd be putting it in there instead of your cars. You'll just have to scrape your wife's windows.

    I'd be willing to bet you could fit a Mojo in your garage. Take some measurements. If not and you want to go with the bigger boat anyway, just add on!

    Oh yeah, I forgot you said the 2 car side was shorter...Mojo will fit diagonally in your 2 car stall! Like I said, scrape some windows in the winter.

    I am not overly worried about the greatest width of the boat. I was more worried about the width in the back and the effect it would have on us using the door to the house.

    I sent quick email to the dealer here asking them to take a few measurements. The trailer must taper somewhat along the back along with the boat. I asked for the measurement from the outside of one guide pole to the outside of the other guidepole. They said it came in at 101.5" so just under the 102" that is listed.

    92.5" - Fender to fender if guidepoles are removed - (they said they have modified this to include a quick release pin if this is needed so they can be taken off - I don't think I need this though but I guess it could be an option)

    Either way I am going to the dealer next Monday to hopefully finalize my options. I still don't think I could pull off having the Mojo take up 2 stalls during the winter. Now.....I think I could potentially maybe pull this off during the boating season and store the Mojo elsewhere during the winter!

    I had my mind set on a Mondo due to the size and now I am questioning it again. You guys keep messing with my head!

    That's what I do.............easier to store cars outside during the summer when there are no windows to scrape!!!
