Everyone knows that kayaks are enormous. While they may be one of the most expensive camping investments you will make, kayaks will bring you hours and hours of enjoyment on the water. Kayaking is a popular pastime for people of all ages, and thousands of people have invested in their own kayaks. The trouble with kayaks is their stability. Being hard plastic, you don’t want a kayak out in the rain and elements for too long, as it may cause wear and tear to your boat.
Yet, they are often too big to fit in your garage if you have two cars. In this video, we will look at some outdoor storage solutions for keeping your kayak dry and in tip-top shape.
The first thing you can do is to mount your kayak on your garage wall. Kayaks take up a lot less place when they are vertical, so utilize your free garage space for your kayak. If you don’t have room, then you will have to store it outside. A simple two by four pedestal can keep your kayak safe from ground contact, and a tarp over it can keep it from the weather. Putting all your fishing and kayaking supplies into your kayak when you store it is a great way to ensure you don’t forget anything on your next trip.
