    Yes, everything I said was assuming no platform.

    Default 06 LSV in the garage?

    Sounds like my exact situation. We're closing on a house oct. 9th, we must have looked at 45 houses. Only 3 had garage deep enough and with a single wide door that would fit our Supra 21V. It's in an HOA sub but the neighborhood is really great from talking to a couple of current owners. We actually looked at the house behind the one we bought that was also for sale and spent a good amount of time talking with the sellers (it was FSBO) to get a feel).

    I prefer non-HOA and to have acreage but where we were looking to move meant it couldn't be escaped. We would be 45 minutes at least away from Lake Wylie if we wanted land, and because my wife works in the great school district we wanted too it made sense.

    New house has a 25' deep garage!! Can't wait to move in!

    Best of luck Wax on your offer!

    Thanks!

    Yeah since this neighborhood isn't HOA, I can probably actually put up an instant garage thing next to the house and use it just for the boat. Might even be able to get a tall one like for a motorhome and keep the tower up! We'll see. I'm not too concerned now that I know I can leave it in the driveway, but of course in shelter is always good (although right now it's on my hoist not in shelter all summer lol). Winter time isn't a concern, my father in law has a big pole barn I'll be storing it in anyway.

    Yeah we would rather be out in the country with acreage and closer to the water but with my fiancÚ's job being in town and her working night combined with my insane work schedule we concluded that it would be best for is to remain relatively close to her job and our families.

    I have the same boat but on a tandem axle swing tongue trailer and it needs a minimum depth of 22'-3" but I would strongly recommend that you put your boat on your trailer and measure it. Would hate for you to take our word for it then find out it doesn't fit because your trailer is set up a little different. Good luck.

    Well on to house offer #3. First two fell through. I'm not going to offer on one in the HOA neighborhood, I couldn't live like that. The one I just offered on is on a cul de sac backing to the woods, and is in the neighborhood that's on the lake so it's just down the street. Unfortunately, the garage is only 22' even. Maybe the boat will fit at an angle. If not, I'm not concerned really. Worst case is I get one of the harbor freight instant garages and keep it in there. Or just keep it in the driveway with the cover on, not like that's any different than it sitting on my hoist with the cover on!

    that would be my last option just due to possible vandalism or theft of boat or items in boat.

    That's tricky on a brick house. I added a couple inches through the drywall on one house though.
