4 Ways To Store Your Kayak

September 9, 2015

Storing a kayak isn't like storing a traditional boat, and you must make allowances for the kayak's unique shape and size. Keep your kayak in great shape no matter how long you store it by checking into these four ways to conveniently and securely store your kayak. Before you put your kayak into storage, clean it thoroughly and lubricate metal parts. Tighten any loose screws or bolts, and remove any type of fabric upholstery.

  1. Hanging Kayak Storage - This is the most popular and recommended type of kayak storage. Adjustable loops suspend from the ceiling and safely store your kayak along with your paddles. This is a space saving method of storage and is easy to install and use. Store one or more kayaks this way.

  2. Wall Storage - Install a wall rack to store your kayak. These are best used indoors, such as in a storage unit or garage. The rack is retractable so you can rotate it out of the way when you're not using it, then pull the arms down when you need it. It keeps your kayak off of the floor and is easy to put together.

  3. Freestanding Storage - If you don't want to deal with installing a wall storage unit or a hanging kayak storage rack, opt for an easy, convenient freestanding storage unit. These units sit on the ground and offer storage for up to three kayaks.

  4. Rolling Storage - A rolling storage unit makes it easy for you to store two or three kayaks, and roll them out of the way when you're trying to get to other items in your storage unit. These heavy duty storage racks have an open shelf on the bottom where you can store extras like paddles or life jackets. This is a perfect option if you have a full storage unit and need to add or remove things from time to time. It keeps your kayaks in perfect shape all season long.
