First off, I know the basics: indoors, out of the sun. After that, I see two options and would love some input:
- I build a rack over my cars and slide the yak up there when it is not being used. I have heard tales of oil canning however, when a kayak rests on the bars/slats of a rack - particularly when it is there for some time such as thru a northeastern winter.
- The second choice that I have heard is to store it upright on its stern in a corner. I would imagine that the oil canning risk is minimized, but all of the weight would now be resting on a very small portion of the hull. I don’t see that as desirable.
I don’t believe that wall mounted storage would work in my garage.
