No, not with Geico!
I was able to fit the extra cab and the X1 into the garage with room to spare for the civic!!! No storage for me.

Donít try this with your 23 footers kids!

Look at the shine on that boat. What a good group of friends you have!!

Congratulations on getting your toys in one spot.

I am sure that the "Boat Owner" will be very happy.

Now you need to rig something and get that tower off the upholstery.

ya ouch!!? with the tower down will it wreck the upholstery? I do store mine with it up but I was just wondering? I once forgot that it was down for a few days and was like wow thats deep but it came back to perfect!

I laid down the back seat upside down and placed the tower on it until I can get my pulley system going.

Attila - i can get you a picture but i took a 2x4, covered it in a soft material and laid it across the hull. i use a little hand towel in between the fiberglass and the 2x4. i then cut out a circle in a piece of 2x4. cut that in half and gave me two half circles. i mounted that to the 2x4 and the tower rests perfectly inside the 2 half circles.

is there any chance in ... that you understood that? anyway, it works well and is easy. have been towing my boat like that for 3 years and no problems and best of all NO BUGS.

Matt, I tried to explain that to him. I was face to face too. He said it was too much work. SLACKER!!! I would say he should do it, because getting the boat in and out of the garage is still an issue. ... I'll try again. I'm sure he'll want me to help him with whatever he decides.

Matt I uderstood the first part, but what does that have to do with towing and bugs?

I think the bycicle hoist/pulley system will be easier for me to operate when I am putting the boat away without any help.

Any tips for getting the swim platfor on and off by yourself?

I can get you a good deal on Cat 5 cable. We can take the cable a rusty lag bolt and pully in the ceiling. Then Ill teach ya how to tie knots.

Actually Bicycle Hoist is a good idea. I always see them in Marshals on truxel for about 19 bucks

Thats a pretty sweet looking truck you got there to. Post a better picture of your truck/boat set-up.

Huh, I thought that we were riding on Friday night? How did the boat get in the garage? Ohh, I guess it was the special effects of those Belgium Beers with 12% Alchohoooooool and those top shelf Margharitas. I thought that I was feeling the wake but I guess it was just the drinks!

Big E.
Since images of me wakeboarding aren't very striking I might as well post pics of the hardware.

I really need to re-do the CF numbers!

Very sweeet set up!

I agree the numbers do not match the beauty of the set up. When I see the shine on that boat, I do not mind beeing the cleaning biatch.

Attila - the reason i mentioned the towing and the bugs is that i store the boat AND tow it with the tower down and resting on that piece of 2x4 that i built. with the tower down, i dont get any bugs on the tower. and then when i get home, i just back it right into the garage.

while at the lake and cleaning, get somebody to help you lay the tower down. that way you wouldnt have to do anything by yourself when you got home. would take 3 minutes.
