Re: New Builder in Florida, Advice Needed

You might be able to build to 15 ft.I have a 17ft monark with 90 merc and per measurement would fit in a 21 ft garage with a couple inches to spare so if you could make it 2 ft shorter ,that might fit. :D you didn't specifi adult sizes :big guys or skinny dudes :D
