I was wondering if I can store Hobie Bravo under my Getaway....
I keep my boat on the beach and I would like to get used Bravo for my son but no more spots available :cry:
Can anybody measure it for me please ? I need the hight from the top of the hull to the bottom of the kill. I know that if it fits I will have to store it stern forward because of the mast assembly but that I can do even if part of it is going to stick out.

Thank you guys,

Don't have one here to measure, but the box the Bravo comes packed in is only 24 inches high. So it can't be anymore than that.

Just went out in the backyard and measured the height of the Hull. It looks like the "tallest part of the hulls is the center portion, where the hatch is. That measured just about 23-1/2 inches. The measurement to the top of the mast step (ball) was about 24-1/2 inches, and the measurement to the top of the A frame was about 42 inches.

My boat was on the lawn, so I can't say these were exact, but they are close enough to get an idea how tall the boat is.

I've been out back measuring the various spaces for a Getaway on a trailer.... I pretty sure a Bravo is not going to fit under a Getaway without some serious modifications. And then I think it would screw up the tongue weight to the point towing could be dangerous.

If the Getaway doesn't have wings, it would be easy enough to put the Bravo on top by going over the side. And we have hauled a Bravo on a Getaway with wings to boat shows - it's just a PITA to get up there. The trick is supporting the Getaway mast at the aft end when the Bravo is on top.

I didn't mean to tow it like that. The boat will sit on the grass at the local beach. It was only idea to fit two cats on my spot at the beach since all others are taken.
Thanks for all replies guys. 8)

When it's this busy, my reading comprehension suffers. Props to Brad for getting the question right.
