Question when the boatnin the.garage does.the door come down on the draw.bar if the motor is trimmed down?

Can you still git the trailer in if you get a foldable drawbar or put it in on the angle?

WISE DECISION.
Nothing worse than sitting in the cold trying to prep the boat and the same when you come back for cleaning and storing. the shed will also have some sort of light which will be usefull at night, cant say the same for outdoors ( a torch just doesnt come close)
also the boat is kept dry undercover, boat covers will eventually come off unless its a custom made one to fit the boat. outdoors water will pool on the top making it hard to take the covers off without getting wet.

besides that all DIY jobs can now be done no matter the elements.

Good luck with the shovel.

If u can make your garage bigger why wouldn't you??? Everybody need a bigger garage regardless :) .
A certain member on here, got his flares stolen (and set off down the street) from his boat a couple of weeks ago.
