Brian,
You said that you want to have your boat left hooked to your garage when you BACK in.

Rather, why not create the space in such a way that you can simply drive through your garage, so that you never have to back in.

i.e. open up the front garage door and pull in and park.

Then, when leaving, open up the back door and drive right on out. No turning, no backing etc.

If you need to, rearrange the building site for a turn around on the back of the house.

Take care

That was my first thought when we were looking for lots. Couldn't find a lot that was big enough for that and that laid out the correct way. Believe me, we looked for it. Thanks REW!

That sounds like a great idea (using osb plywood instead of drywall) but the price of lumber/osb is 3X higher now during Covid than it was pre-Covid, so I don't think I will be doing that in my garage. I will have 9 foot ceilings in the garage and 8 foot garage doors. Hopefully that will be plenty high enough for the boat and truck. Thanks again Yellowfin!

You're not off topic. Storage ideas are exactly what I'm looking for so thanks! As far as Lake Ouchita, it is a beautifal lake. Only have fished it twice so far but looking forward to learning it once we move down there. 40,000 plus acres with no homes on the shorelines. It is beautiful for sure! Thank YF...
