Jumping back to the ioriginal Q - assuming a "standard single" garage door, that does limit things qouite a bit.

Somewhere out here I posted what I had found having been throug hthe same process, if ou can't find it, shout & I'll re- post the findings when I get to the home PC where they are stashed.....

Memory says there is only 1 (small) Ribcraft <2m beam, although that may have changed. SR4.7 / 5.4 - Any "2mBeam" Humber (O-Pro / Assault & I think there is a small Destroyer?) Probably a couple of Zodiacs as well, but for a 90 you are getting into "bigger boat than the garage will take" territory, so do your reasearch!

I also wrote a thing or two on rib trailers for confined space storage again - shout if you can't find it.


Now, the big problem you will have is being restricted to 2m beam, you can take out nearly a metre of that for toob diameter and side -by-side seating suddenly gets tight. Not a problem of course if you have a double garage with double door!

Dual helm on a 5m boat? sounds a tad OTT, but as someone with a few "different" things on my own rib, I am curious......

That's not what it looked like when I ran off ahead of you in the Searider, going faster and being thrown round less...

That is, unless you were deliberately pointing the spotlight at the sky a lot

Most Ribs up to a 5.5m will do fine with a 90hp 2T

Width is not issue, I have a double almost triple width garage with two barn doors


So about a 5+m rib would do the job, off to the jumble I go.... I have been PM'd regards an engineless project so will follow that up.

I shan't mention having to keep slowing down so you could keep up, til you put a huge motor on it
