I now have a used plastic sea kayak 17’ 3"; I’ll use it a few more weeks and then its in winter storage until spring. In the summer it can live on pool noodles in the garage for quick access but in winter, I’m going to have to hang it somewhere so the wife can get her car in the garage. Options–
Outside but completely protected underneath our family room 5ft off the ground with no chance of water getting on it. I can put as many hangers as I can need from above. Like four with ropes with PVC and pool noodles supporting at four points.
In the garage hanging from the ceiling. It’s 17’ and the garage is 18’ with lifting doors to the hangers can’t go back about 5’ from one end.
In the garage but on J hooks. But no walls are accessible so they’d have to get clamped to the two posts in the center of the garage at the 1/3rd and 2/3rds points.
