    I'm wondering if anyone has any tricks or gadgets they've come up with in order to get their boat in their garage. I currently keep my 242 Limited S in a warehouse but eventually want to bring it home every once in a while. I have 8' doors on the garage. I think if i remember correctly that the winshield is 8' tall on the trailer without the wake tower. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    2 tricks I know if you only need a couple of inches. FYI - These tips don't work on your man parts.
    1. If you have an adjustable hitch, drop it as low as it will go when backing into the garage.
    2. Lower the air pressure in the trailer tires when backing into the garage. Don't forget to refill the tires in the garage.

    There's an extensive post I had for getting my 212X into my 8' garage from 1 year ago - search for it.

    I highly doubt you could get the 242 through an 8' tall garage opening, considering my 212X literally clears it by a gnat's nut hair. All this while the bimini is completely removed and the tower's retainer wires removed.
