This might be one of those recurring questions for which everyone has their canned answers, and if so I do apologize. It occurred to me though that I’m hesitating going out paddling today because I’m home alone and my boat is rather awkwardly placed among the 4 boats in my small (about 10’ x 24’) shed.
It’s a working shed, in which I need to also store gardening stuff and a riding lawn tractor. I’m sure I’m trying to stuff more in there than I should, and every time I look at it I imagine having a nice huge heated enclosed space for all my crap. This isn’t likely to happen any time in the near future though.
You can see in the picture that I put up a rack for one boat, and I had plans to do the entire wall and get about 3 or 4 boats there, but I’m not happy with the rack design I came up with. I see this as the most likely solution for me, it just needs some tweaking and I’m hoping for some suggestions.
So, I’ll put it out there. How do you store your fleet of sea kayaks indoors/protected in limited space? I’m aware that other boats may be easier to store but it’s the long hard-shell boats I’m interested in. With a fleet of 4 and at least one more in a few years (cedar strip long term project) I’d like a way to effectively store all of the boats while maintaining easy access to them.
Anything goes, but cheap, simple, and effective wins gold prize.
