I’m in a bit of a bind storing two 16-foot kayaks, one composite, one corelite-x plastic. The only place I can store them on my property (a rental) is outside, in a place that gets full sun for about 10 hours a day. Temps are between 80 and 100 F most days. So I’ve created a PVC-pipe shelter, covered the thing in suncloth that blocks 95% UV rays, bought a Malone J-rack, padded the J hooks, and then added two individual kayak covers to account for the rest of the light/heat.
Not sure there’s more I can do, but in reading about setups similar to mine, there’s a strong emphasis on storing boats upside-down or on their side. I can only really manage to load/unload this thing in the configuration below (see attached) – hull side down, but the boat at a 45 degree angle against the padded J-hooks. In this config, am I destined to warp the hull over time? Is there any advantage to going deck-side-down if it’s still at a similar 45 degree angle?
