I’m planning to be a first-time canoe owner in Sacramento (it’s 108F today, hot dry summers) and just about have all the questions I think need answered about how to store a canoe (e.g., out of direct sun, upside down on gunwales supported by saw horses, etc.).
So, I have a detached garage, metal door that’s about 20 X 20 ft and no roof vents. Needless to say, it gets hot in there (maybe 130 degrees at peak heat?). My plan is to store a 16 or 17 ft canoe in there (maybe an OT Camper in royalex or Bell canoe in whitegold).
I’m planning to install some passive roof vents this weekend.
One of my buddies said I need to get one of those solar attic fans (~$300) too.
How hot is too hot? Am I overthinking this or should I just dump the canoe in the garage and be done with it? Yay or nay on the solar attic fan?
Thanks in advance. Btw, this message board has been incredible.
