Orkney 440 question

Post by Simon Barton » Mon Oct 12 2020 21:40

Can anyone with a 440 tell me the length of their rig from motor to front of trailer please? I’m working out if I can get one in my garage. Thanks.

You might shave a bit off that length with a smaller trailer and outboard to one side, even a detachable front to the trailer, unless you are well out

Don't be a knob Kev. Just slam the garage door shut with the pointy end sticking out. Voila! :exit:

The mrs will complain about splinters if you do that. My way you can point out the exquisite woodwork and how it complements her new hairdo :thumbs:

I would never have thought of that. You are obviously more of a people person than me.
