I am building a house and putting a bsmt garage under my main garage. Will a 7' high garage door be high enough to fit in a boat on the trailer? I plan on upgrading from the ski boat I have now and was wondering what are the heights of some of the boats that are out there?
No, that won't be enough. It's barely enough for me to get my 92 Ski Nautique with a New Dimension tower on it through the door. I have about 2 inches. My friend has an x2 and has to take the rear section of the tower off to get it in the garage.
Thanks for the responses so far. My upper garage will have 8' high doors but the lower one won't fit an 8' high. I could go to 7'-6" but it would have to be a custom made door. In the summer the boat could go in the upper garage because my truck can sit outside but in the winter I want to store it in the basement garage so even if I had to take the tower apart it wouldn't be a big deal. Any more heights? (with towers down)
I havent actually measured the height and it was just an eyeball measurement on my behalf. I have a 7 ft door and my VLX appears to be a good 1ft too tall with the nav light and racks sticking up. I dont think 05 and older have the nav lights so they might be a bit lower.
I have an 05 VLX. I can fit my boat in my 7 foot garage. I had to lower the trailer 4 inches and put low profile tires on the trailer. I also have to remove the tow ball from the tower. The extreme trailer can be lowered up to 6 inches.
