Made a John Halls of my calculations.

Well I thought that I would be able to fit my new rib in the garage, I knew that It would be a tight fit getting it through one of the single doors, but I didn't reckon on the width of the new trailer, the wheels stick out a lot more than my last one. I now wish I had a double door fitted when it was built anyway to save me having to pay out good cash to have a double door fitted, I wonder if anyone knows if you can get some sort of contraption to off load the rib from the trailer it will have to have castors or small wheels on it, so I can manoeuvre it into a diagonal position to fit in the garage.

Does anyone make anything like this, all help appreciated,

many thanks,

kerny.

Winching it on and off a cradle everytime you use it will very quickly become a pita. And you will still need to store the trailer somewhere.

Can you swap the trailer for a narrower one?

Can you store the boat somewhere else keeping the garage free for other toys and clutter!?

Or if it is easier you could just give the boat to me and I will "look after it" for you.
