      Richard,
       
      Width and height are not a problem, but length is.  It is long.  So measure the garage and compare it to the boat/trailer length.

      one more thing, will the 19 really fit in a standard garage?

      Hey Ken, I'm in Covington and have been considering a 19 for a while and have a few questions if you don't mind.
       How does it handle under power vs a traditional runabout
       I would use it 50/50 fishing marsh/coastal rigs to about 10miles offshore and sailing lake Pontchatrain/ Destin area.
       thanks in advance

      I am seriously considering adding a CDI FF2 furler to my 19. Probably
      put the Genoa on it. A few questions:

      Do the jib sheets for the genoa go outside the side stays? Mine have
      turning blocks and I am only guessing how to set it up. Will the
      sheets work properly with a furler? Suggestions?

      Do furlers work ok on the 19? What things should I consider?

      Is there plenty of room on the foredeck for the furler drum?

      Anything else?

      Who has the best price on CDI furlers?

      Thanks,
      Ken Abrahams, Lake Charles, La
