Looking for a new fiberglass boat

4 posts in this topic

   I re-posting this because I put it in the wrong forum.  Anyway, I'm looking for purchase a new fiberglass fishing boat, but having a tough time finding a suitable model.  Basically, I'm looking for one under 20' (18.5' to 20' max; 19' optimal), prefer a deep-v with a walk-through windshield, can clear a standard-height garage and be able to accommodate 9' fishing rods.  Is there such a beast, or am I SOL?

Plenty of options if you are willing to give up the 9' rod storage.  Center rod storage on the Skeeters and Pro V GL are 7'6'' yarcraft makes an 18' boat with 8' center storage.  9' storage under 20' is going to be difficult unless you don't mind stuffing them on the side.....

You need to tell what you mean by "standard" garage height garage door. I think 8' is standard for me, but 7' is for many people. What do you have? Just about anything will fit a 8' door, but 7' might get tight for some windshields or even motors, depending upon how the hitch on tow vehicle is set up.

How deep is the garage?  19 foot boat and what, 3 feet for the motor, little more for even a folding tongue on trailer.
