Buying one of those carport overhangs

Captwalt1Captwalt1 Posts: 114 Officer
to keep my boat under and need to figure out what height to get. i measured the boat height but don't have my t-top yet and don't want to get one to low. Any body have an idea on the height of a normal t-topped 22 ft cc with a top? I'm thinking 12 ft just not sure. Thanks in advance for any reply's. Walt

    I can measure how tall my t top sits above the deck. Your trailer will also affect your height. My boat sits 1' lower on the new trailer.
    Also not sure why this thread didn't show up on the general section

    Mine is 80" from the deck. That doesn't account for rocket launchers, lights, antenna etc. good luck ( I'll be selling mine at a good price in the next few months if your interested)

    I have a 24cc with non folding tower. 13' from uppermost point to ground on trailer. 12' should be plenty with regular t top. T tops are typically 7' tall from deck.

    Well i thought about it and i think FS Dan has a good idea. Plus if i ever get a bigger boat it wont hit. Now to find a good deal on it. Thanks for all the great advice. Walt

    And make sure your city code allows them

    I checked with the permit/building dept in largo and was told no problem. I have enough property for it.

    Standing on the boat under one of those sheds. The closer your head is to the roof is the hotter it will be. I have a couple of those sheds and get them higher than I need so heat wont be a problem while I'm working on boat
