I just bought 2 pristine Hobie kayaks…1 is an Outback and the other a Pro Angler, both pedal drive systems. To transport the kayaks, I also bought a 2 wide kayak trailer with pads for the rails to protect the hulls.
My question involves storage: I have an open area on the end of my shed that is covered with a roof to keep sun off the kayaks. I plan to store the boats on the trailer so they will sit atop the pads…not strapped down as in transport, but sitting atop the padded rails. I also plan to pick up a couple of lightweight covers to protect the kayaks from dust and trash that gets blown around like from a lawn mower or windy days in general.
Will this storage plan damage or warp the hulls since the kayak is resting on 2 pressure points? Not being familiar with Hobie’s materials, I have no experience to know if this storage plan will be an issue causing hull warp, or will this be ok?
Thanks for advice!
