Has anyone put a Z21 in a 21x21 garage at an angle? Or, those who do keep their z21 in a garage at an angle what size is your garage?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

I had a 1996 Nitro 205, which was 20'6", plus trailer, which had a swing away tongue, every bit as long as my 2019 Z21. I could easily fit it in a 22 x 22 garage at an angle. Just remodeled most of house, new garage is now 22 X 29 so no problems anymore, maybe just need to enlarge your garage. :)

Thx for the reply. This is a case of 1) my wife loves the house we are looking at moving to 2) the community has a HOA that is not friendly towards exterior changes. I want acreage for a nice 40x40 shop. Oh well.. happy wife happy life right! Bet that expression was not started by a guy.

Airbear72, I have this 2019 Z20 Pro, it measures 23'8" with the folding tongue, my garage measured 23'6" I of course have to turn the engine all the way to the port side and I tilt the engine until the prop is slightly further out than the cowl. I attached a plywood panel to the drywall and then screwed at rubber floor mat to the plywood, when I push the boat in the last foot the prop will touch the rubber and then spring back off it so there is no pressure against the prop or the hydraulic steering system. I cut a 1' section out of the 2 bottom ribs on the garage door, I'M IN!!!! I also added an electric screen closure to the outside of the cinder blocks so that adds another 12" of room. They sometimes recess those closures, I had them install it to the exterior. I also had 10' Talon's, I bought the tilt plates for them and installed them myself so I can tilt them and garage door height not an issue either.

Glad I could help, grease it up and slide it in!!!! LOL Reminds me of an old adage, "When there's a will, there's a way"
