Why not deflate the tubes to get it in the garage?

If there is space you can inflate them when you get it inside. Get an electic pump, it will only take a few minutes.

Space? Yes of course ...place for 3 boats like solent 600.but this fuc**** door. Maybe inflate/deflate can be the solution but it's boring.I'm going out every week end in summer, all saturday and sunday.when you stock the boat in the garage i imagine you need keep it inflate non?

I used to partially deflate my tubes to get through a door. I would let about a third of the air out then put straps between the tube lifelines to pull them in and thus reduce the width. It worked ok but added about 20 mins to getting out and putting away. I would release the straps once in but leave it partially deflated.

You're looking at this the wrong way. The door is the problem, not the boat...

Partially deflating the tubes is an easy solution that takes little effort or time with a 12v electric pump.

If that is not acceptable then your pretty much limited to a VSR 5.8R with a 2.18m beam. There is nothing narrower.

VSR 5.8R Boats

VSR 5.8 R - VSR France
