Re: Where to start...

I took a tape measure to my garage today.. and I am afraid my idea of hoisting the jig off the ground and parking below is not going to work.

Hi there. I apologize for the long post.. I need to give some background so I can get the right advice. I've recently re-discovered my interest in boating after a 20 year break.
