I had my house extension spec to fit the boat!! The wife was not happy when her utility room was shortened to accommodate a slightly larger garage.

The guy who lives across the street from me has the perfect set up. His house is on a corner and his garage is on the side closest to the corner. The garage has doors both front and back and a driveway leading to both streets.
Drive in, un-hook, drive out: then back in from the other street, hook up and drive out. Oh how I wish.

I can't say anything of the Menai but avoid the 4.7m Humber, the Assault isn't a particularly good hull as it is far too shallow.
If I was you I would look at the Ribcraft 4.8m despite the price.

It's worth thinking about a 4.7 Searider too.
