Glad I stopped by the pool as the straps were re-installed and they’re lower, at least the bottom ones are. My recollection is that the walls were block but now they’re covered. Unsure if my memory failed me or if the wall covering is new, but glad it’s there. Given the location of the straps, I don’t think getting the Prana in them will be as challenging as I feared. I’ve got a set of 24" stands which will make it even easier to do on my own. Will bring some 303 as the strap buckles are balky. There’s five sets of double straps and storage opens November 1 - that’s the only downer as if I want to be sure to get on the lower level, I’ll have to bring the kayak in then. But will keep the Fathom at home until I’m iced out.
@TomL In the pool area I use a cart from where the boat is stored to where I enter the boat from the pool. When done I cart it to the rinsing area so I can hose it down well, inside and out, because chlorine is hard on deck rigging, etc. Blessings to whoever invented the wheel!
@Marshall I studied those attachments. With long enough rope, the bleacher rails could be the tie-off.
Thanks for all the help and ideas!
