    Default boat & trailer lenghth

    Ok guys, I'm over here in the desert in Kuwait and am going to have a shop built back home. I never measured my last boat to see what the lenght was from trailer tongue to the back of pump. Say I pick up a 19' Daytona with a setback JG pump..what would be the total length of the setup..I doubt I'll find one with a fold-away tongue so I'm needing a guesstimate on how long my shop needs to be. 30' atleast I assume.

    From the tip of the tongue to the end of the pump is going to be at about 25' give or take a foot. 30' deep should be plenty but since it wouldn't be much more in cost, I'd go 32', if you've got the space.

    Yea I've got the space. Just trying to decide between something like a 24x30 or a 30x40. Plus I want to have enough room for a boat, race car, and 2 4wheelers.

    well, it seems like no matter how big a garage is, it's never be big enough. If you go with the 24'x30, just putting the boat and car side by side will take up at least 16' in width with a lot of room to walk around each of them. I'd go with the 30'x40' but I'd also do a 12'x5' extension off the back for tools and a work bench.

    30x40. My daytona with removeable tongue is exactly 21' 6". set back pump and all. fits in a 22' box trailer with 3" to spare, not ideal but it works. Looking to upgrade to a 28 to 30 box trailer some day. If it were me I'd do a 30' deep garage no question.

    build it bigger than what you would think,your gonna need room for a lift if you ever decide to remove the engine,make room for storage shelves and a big work bench,i built a 30 x 50 25 years ago and it filled up over the years,i hate to get rid of something i might use in the next 25 years. i have a 21' boat and it takes up 25' with the trailer,IMO the first thing you should do is build shelves about 3' deep down one side,you won't regret it.

    I'd go 30 x 40 minimum, bigger if you can.

    All garages should have at least the same square footage as the nearest house and should contain hot and cold running water, a toilet and proper heating and air conditioning and 100 amp 220 service

    I have a 4 car garage side by side but the focking thing is about 5 inches short on depth to be able to park my Chevy 2500 in it. You can never have a garage big enough.

    Cant go to big, I started off in a 24x 24, then moved to a new 30x40 and thought damn , I'll never fill this thing up, but now at the new house I've built a 40x60 with a 12ft ceiling, guess what its full, I'm building a smaller outbuilding just to get rid of the mowers and other little crap that I dont want in my garage.
    Moral of the story, if your planning on spending the rest of your days there, then go as big as you can afford or have room for.

    i have a 40x40 and its not big enough. figure what you need and double it you always end up putting more stuff in it. what ever you do make sure you have at least a 1 10' wide garage door & 1 8' wide garage door on it.

    I'm working out of a 3 car garage of tools and equipment only, no vehicles. It's a constant shuffel moving the saw to get to welder, move bender to get band saw, move everything to set up a work table.As they say you can never have too much money, too much fun, too many toy's, or a big enough garage. My suggestion would be to build as big as you can afford!!
