Cool!  Looks like you drove her right in.

Looks great! Do you pull it with the CR-V? If so, how does it do? Is yours two-wheel or all-wheel drive?

Thanks!

Pull with CRV two wheel drive.  Trailer / boat is well below the 1500 lb limit for towing. Tows nicely.

The boat is pulled into the garage from a slightly uphill driveway using a Warn Pullzall 110V portable electric winch hooked to a pad eye in the garage floor. Really works slick.

Your garage is entirely too free of clutter. Almost as clean as Capt Nemos, which was cleaner than most restaurant floors. Very nice. I like the low transom of the Legacy- never noticed it before.

She fits nicely in there! But why not just back it in with the CR-V instead of using a winch to pull it in?

I moved my work bench two feet left so the bow would fit in " the slot."  Stern first would result in my having to eliminate the work bench.  Besides my backing skills would result in my bride "coaching me with a loud voice" and eventually the sound of "Crunch." With the winch I can do it all myself.

  In a previous life (1990) my wife and I (both glider pilots) kept our sailplane / trailer in the back of our garage. This photo got more comments about the garage floor than the sailplane.

  You really should see someone about this problem. Sure, in years past, people didn't talk about these kinds of mental health issues but today there is lots of good help out there. There are books, self-help groups and 10 step programs. You don't need to carry this burden alone.
  Please tell me you don't wax your floor. Please! At least your driveway looks like bare (but very nice) concrete.

Documented USAF physiological workup says I am a compulsive conformist - meaning I conform to the "cultural idea of the norm" not the institutionalized norm. In the 55+ gated community we lived in everyone had their garage floor painted. We conformed to that "cultural norm." On the other hand when the psychologist told me about my "Condition" I told her that anyone who spends a career in the military is dead, court martialed or a compulsive conformist.

My affliction shows up in my boats.  Here is our Westsail 32 in 1976. Teak must be oiled, line must be coiled, etc., etc.
