>>>>>>How wide of a door is required to pass a completed Skerry?
With care, the Skerry will go through a normal doorway. We've done it, as it's a normal-sized door that separates the showroom from the front workshop unless we feel like carrying the boat outside through the roll-up doors.
More specifically, the Skerry could be levered through an opening measuring exactly 22-3/4" x 57-1/2", smaller than you'd think.
I once designed and built a 15-foot strip-planked electric-powered launch, which I built in my living room. Here's a photo of it coming out the front door. The tolerances were 0.00" in width. The two white strips on the ground on the lower right are some bits of 1/4"-thick trim that had to be removed when it became clear how close a shave it was going to be.
