Houdehni: All my info is at home and I'm at work today (hey, got to pay for that new Lund somehow). Let me look tonight and see if I can post a diagram and a photo or two.

Just an FYI. Back in Summer 2014 I started measuring my garage to see if I could fit a Ranger 175T with a 75 HP Evinrude E-TEC in. Well, I measured and measured and re-measured. It will fit with 2" to spare. I drove out to a dealership in Iowa who had one on the floor. Good it will fit. I placed the order for the 175T and added an 80 LB thrust MinnKota Terrova on a removable mount of course. I picked the boat up in late November 2104. Bring it home, back it in, press the close button on the garage. Door comes down till it hit the skeg of the Terrova. There was a brief moment of panic, till I realized all I had to do was remove the Terrova from the mount and slide it back. In retrospect, I should have ordered the sliding MinnKota mount. Moral of the story is if you're planning a bow mount, order a removable or sliding mount.

I love this boat & motor.

When I bought my rig, I measured twice and figured I would be good to go. Trailer came with a swing tongue. Got the rig home and it would not fit. Had to cut the tongue some more. So, measure twice, cut once, do a better job than I did.

By the time you get to longer boats, you will need to start worrying about how tall the boat sits on the trailer. My 19' Yarcraft windshield clears a 7' garage door header by 1/2". I need to use a garage door opener that can pull the door up past it's natural upper resting position to get full benefit of the garage door header height.

Houdehni - I stand corrected, my garage is 19' 0" deep by 19' 6" wide. Here's a simple sketch of the layout with the garage door at the bottom of the picture. There's steps by the motor leading into the house, and 12" deep shelves on the wall behind the boat. The boat is at around a 45 degree angle, taking up most of the garage. I'm hard pressed to get a lawn tractor in there, so a small car is out of the question. Also shown is a picture from outside the garage looking in to give you an idea of how tight a fit it is.

This is very helpful, thank you! And that looks like one sweet ride!

Thumbs up

Glad it helped you, I know I was very nervous about the fit up to the point when I pushed it into the garage for the first time.


And yeah, after fishing out of a 17 ft BassTracker for 25 years, this is one sweet ride!

I have 1/2" windshield clearance as well with my Impact and that's with the door open as far as it will go.

I have same garage depth, and my 2002 Lund 1700 Fisherman fit w a swing tongue.
I had to have the 115 Merc 4 stroke hang straight down and I had to turn the motor to one side for everything to fit.
I actually think I could’ve got a 1800 Fisherman to fit, I would’ve had to move the front winch on the trailer forward, and I would’ve cut a 16”x24” hole in my drywall, that would’ve given my another 4” (2x4 wall depth).
Do some careful measuring and you’d be surprised what you can fit, be aware that some swing tongue trailers allow more than others.
Good luck.

My garage threshold and ceiling is lower than yours, so entering when backing in is a little tricky. The height of the windshield, and more significantly, the motor varies as the boat and trailer are backed in. Many will have a drive sloping down from the threshold, so the hitch is lower during the approach and departure. This has the beneficial affect of lowing the windshield with respect to the threshold, but significantly raising the motor. I have to re-trim the motor several times to get clearance at the threshold even though the motor is about 8 lower than the windshield. When in place my windshield is 2 lower than the ceiling.

The point is one can not rely on static height measurements to validate clearance. The heights change as the trailer approaches and enters a garage.
