How tall is your RIB?

Getting plans drawn up for an extension to my house and garage and was wondering how tall should I make the garage (or hopefully boat house) doors.

I've only a SIB and landrover to fit in at the moment so 7ft high is fine, but want the garage to be future proof for a 7.5m RIB.

So my question is... how tall are ribnetters' RIBs when on a trailer? On trailer, with A frame, antennas folded.

Or rather, how long is a piece of string?

Many thanks, here's hoping the wife doesn't find out the plans for the attached boathouses and large ribs...

Ed

My Ribcraft 585 sat on a Rapide Roller Trailer with Tow "A" Frame and V-Tronix Rib Raider Antenna is Exactly 2.8m tall (a little over 9ft).

RIB Height

My Valiant V490 without A Frame fits through a standard single-garage door (just!)

Without antenna's and with the aframe standup: about 3.1 mtrs.
With the aframe down she is about 2.3 mtr high. the engine is the highest point.
I don't have a windshield and that makes a bit difference. We have alot of low bridges here in holland and so I use no windshield.

I didnt just send him outside - i was there too - taking the photo...

I only wanted him in the shot to give some kind of scale.

My kids are at that age when they can now do stuff - but if you want it done properly you may as well do it yourself.

NASTY - I reckon kids are often a lot more capable than their parents give them credit for - now put that BLOODY camera down before you drop it!!!!
