Boat Bigger than bag

But after 10 mins forcing the thing in, the zipp has closed.

All other until next year. In it's 2 bags and in the garage...
yam 360s, next to its 20hp 2 smoke, all asleep.......

Ali floor is much heavier than the rest of the boat..... I can only just move it the 20 feet into the garage, not much further.....
