Howdy! I was asking a while back about what canoe to get for my clan and we will probably get something in kevlar. I want to hang it from the joists in the garage over the spouse's (obviously!) car. There are inexpensive hoists available but I think that since our garage is so low, I should be able to just attach a pair of 2" webbing saddles to the joists and poke it in if I have enough room to maneuver.
Either with a hoist or without, is there a better way to orient the boat? Do you go upside down with the gunwales resting on the straps or right side up? I know these canoes aren't as fragile as they look but I'd rather mess it up in the water than in the garage.
Any advice? Thanks!
