Topic : Beam

Anyone know what the beam on an NSM 4 is? I've only got a 2m garage door and suspect it won't fit through!

most modern merlins need tilting slightly on the trailer to get them past the door opening !

You can always cut slots in the wood at the sides; 40 years on my Parents Garage Still has them; together with the dark blue paint on the floor.

My NSM iv is about 7ft 3ins. Suggest you tip the boat sideways and see if it will go in. Good luck.

If its 7' 3" its not a legal Merlin 220mm or 7' 2" is the max

Is the "legal" measurement the hull measurement or the absolute overall width between gunwhale edges that you need openings to be?

Clearli in terms of getting it in a garage or shed the critical measurement in overall width which may include the strongback if you're feeling idle.
